Ohio Weather and Wheat Harvest Heat Up
Ohio Ag Connection - 07/10/2018

Winter wheat harvest sped up during the week with help from warmer than average temperatures, according to Cheryl Turner, state statistician with the USDA, NASS, Ohio field office. There were 5.1 days suitable for fieldwork in Ohio during the week ending Sunday. High temperatures continued to be ideal for wheat maturation and harvest but also continued to dry out the soil. Scattered, heavy rains continued to miss most fields yet caused lodging of wheat and corn in others.

Soybean blooming and corn silking continued to outpace 5-year averages with recent increases over normal growing degree days.

Hay harvest was almost able to catch up to last year's progress thanks to the dry weather.
