Ohio Ag Connection - 09/12/2018
Conditions were very dry at the beginning of the week but ample rains were received by week's end, according to Cheryl Turner, state statistician, USDA, NASS, Ohio Field Office. There were 4.4 days suitable for fieldwork in Ohio during the week ending
Soybeans continued to drop leaves and remained in good to excellent condition.
Pastures and hay received some much needed rain. Fields were growing and greening from the new moisture. Harvest was delayed in some areas due to continued rainfall. Corn for silage harvest made headway despite widespread rains. There were little
opportunities for haymaking last week. Some areas subsequently had concerns of flooding.
Rain also delayed livestock and manure management activities.
