LOCAL AND AREA CROP AND CATTLE REPORT – NOV. 13, 2019

Comments are Off

Rain shortened field activities last week and left soybeans and cotton to be harvested and winter wheat to be planted. The days suitable for field work did allow enough time for producers to complete corn harvest though they may face challenges with high corn moisture content. The rains provided the beneficial effect of increasing subsoil moisture and improving winter wheat and pasture conditions; however, lingering effects of dry conditions in early fall required producers to start feeding hay a bit earlier than anticipated. There were 3.9 days suitable for field work. Topsoil moisture was rated 1 percent very short, 9 percent short, 67 percent adequate, and 23 percent surplus. Subsoil moisture was rated 1 percent very short, 14 percent short, 73 percent adequate, and 12 percent surplus.
