Dry Weather Helps Farmers Get in Good Field Work

Farmers get in good field work

___________________________________________________________________________

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — A hot, dry week in most of Missouri gave farmers the perfect opportunity to get into their fields. The Missouri ag. statistics office reports much of the state’s soil has dried out enough to allow producers to work on planting soybeans and cutting hay, and to finish up their corn planting for the spring. Some ground was even being worked in the southeast Missouri flood zone where the statistics office says most of the ground has dried. Statewide, subsoil moisture was rated 2 percent short, 90 percent adequate and 8 percent surplus…with surplus moisture down 20 percent from May 1. Soybean planting jumped 23 percent for the week up to 59 percent for the spring, only about two days behind normal. Corn is now about 98 percent planted, a little behind schedule, but what is planted is emerging about four days ahead of normal. Winter wheat is turning color a little ahead of schedule, but things don’t look good for the winter wheat harvest in southeast Missouri, where some of the crop was lost to flooding, and of the wheat there is, 54 percent is rated in the poor to very poor category in the southeast region.
