New Mexico

There were 3.9 days suitable for field work, says the New Mexico Agricultural Statistics Service Oct. 30.

Farmers and ranchers spent most of the week inside doing paper work, due to wet field and range conditions.

Total sorghum condition remained stable, in mostly very poor to fair condition, with sorghum harvest 46% complete.

Peanuts were in mostly fair to good condition, with over half of the crop harvested.

The chile crop is still looking good, listed in mostly fair to good condition, with red chile harvest almost to the halfway mark.

The total wheat condition improved with last week's rain, moving 16% of the crop out of the very poor category.

Cattle and sheep conditions remained much the same, in mostly poor to good condition.

Pasture and range feed conditions improved again, with 28% very poor, 30% fair and 5% good.
