Corn harvest nearing completion


For the week ending Nov. 11, light precipitation fell in the form of rain across the eastern third of the state and as snow in Panhandle areas, according to the National Agricultural Statistics Service, Nebraska Field Office, Nov. 13.

However, moisture accumulations were often less than .25 inch with many southwestern and south central counties largely missed.

Statewide, corn harvest was near completion. Remaining acres were in western counties where producers continued to deal with the effects of high winds which downed corn nearly a month ago. Winter wheat conditions showed some improvement but emergence continued behind average due to short soil moisture supplies. Soil temperatures averaged in the upper 40s except for a few southwestern counties where soil temperatures were in the low 50s.

Average temperatures varied widely across the state from 5 degrees above normal in the Southeast to 3 degrees below normal in north central counties. Highs ranged from the upper 70s in the southern half of the state to lows near zero in the Panhandle.

Winter wheat emerged was 91 percent, behind 100 percent last year and 99 percent average. Wheat conditions rated 14 percent very poor, 28 percent poor, 43 percent fair, 14 percent good, and 1 percent excellent, well below 77 percent good to excellent last year and 68 percent average. Sorghum harvested was 99 percent complete, ahead of 90 percent last year and 73 percent average.
