Ohio Ag Connection - 05/21/2019

Very slow planting progress continued this week as rains hindered spring progress, according to Cheryl Turner, state statistician, USDA NASS, Ohio Field Office. There were 1.9 days suitable for fieldwork in Ohio during the week ending Sunday.

Soils started to dry out at the beginning of the week, however, significant rain fell at the end of the week which stopped planting. Producers continued to have problems getting into the fields to plant due to wet soil conditions.

Some corn and soybean planting and field preparation was done where conditions allowed, but for most, dryer, warmer weather was needed.

Other activities included manure, fertilizers, herbicides application along with more air fertilizer applications for winter wheat.
