7/15/2015 - Wisconsin Crops Looking Healthy For This Time Of Year -
More Information Most of Wisconsin's major farm crops remain in good shape. New federal figures show that 81-percent of the state's corn is in good-to-excellent condition. Eighty-two percent of soybeans are good-to-excellent, and 29-percent of the beans are blooming -- nine points higher than the average for the past five years. The reports reflect conditions through last Sunday, and they don't include the high winds and storms from Monday which reportedly damaged a number of crops in the southwest part of the state. Despite recent torrential rains in some places, only nine-percent of the state's farm fields had surplus moisture -- down from 12-percent the week before. Three-fourths of fields are said to have adequate moisture.
