Harvest is Underway, Neb. Crop Looking Good so Far

Posted: Updated:

Harvest season is getting underway and much of Nebraska's crops look pretty good so far.

The latest report from the USDA showed 63-percent of Nebraska's corn crop in good or excellent condition.

However, corn harvest is just four-percent complete, compared to a 10-percent average. This is well behind the 34-percent  that was finished this time last year.

Nebraska's soybean crop is rated 59-percent good or excellent with about three-percent of that crop harvested.

In Kansas, a new government report says farmers are harvesting corn, seeding wheat and preparing for fall harvest.

The national agriculture statistics service reported that winter wheat planting in Kansas is 13-percent complete. This is about average for the time of year.

The agency also reported that 16-percent of the Kansas corn crop has now been harvested. Those numbers are far behind the 62-percent that had been cut by the same time last year.

Due to dry conditions this year, the corn crop is rated as 29-percent poor to very poor and only 39-percent good or excellent.
