Wisconsin harvest efforts hindered by winter weather

Wisconsin harvest efforts hindered by winter weather

The Wisconsin harvest remains behind schedule, and the

weekend winter storm didn’t help. 

USDA

reporters say the corn for grain harvest is only 66% complete and the soybean

harvest is only 86% complete.  The

northern two-thirds of the state saw freezing rain and snow as two storm

systems passed through Wisconsin since Thanksgiving, further complicating the

harvest.  Much of the state received over

a foot of new snow.

USDA

says high grain moistures continue to impede grain storage, and driers have

been running full blast as crops came in. 

There are also several reports of low test weights.  Reporters in northern Wisconsin say a lot of

corn will stand through the winter, and some might not be harvested.  Southeastern Wisconsin farmers including some

in Sheboygan and Fond du Lac county that didn’t get much snow are hopeful they

can get remaining soybeans and corn in if the ground remains solid enough for

machinery.
