TENNESSEE CROP, CATTLE AND LIVESTOCK REPORT – MAY 26, 2020

///
Comments are Off

In West Tennessee, wet conditions put producers further behind on planting corn, cotton, and soybeans, with some cotton growers considering switching to soybeans at this point. A few hay producers managed to squeeze in the cutting of some hay, but, for the most part, they were kept out of the field by the weather.

In Middle Tennessee, farmers were also waiting for a break in the rains. A few producers cut and baled some hay, but most were awaiting better weather. Other field activities included the planting of corn and soybeans, and the limited setting of tobacco.

Despite warmer temperatures in East Tennessee, wet conditions brought most field activities to a halt. A few farmers were able to get some corn planted and some hay cut, but little else was accomplished.

There were 3.4 days suitable for field work. Subsoil moisture was rated 1 percent short, 65 percent adequate and 34 percent surplus. Topsoil moisture was rated 1 percent short, 58 percent adequate, and 41 percent surplus.
