Randy Pryor, Extension Educator in Saline County: Soybean planting came to a halt with 0.85 to 1.10 inches in Saline County. Most of Gage County remained dry enough for spraying and planting to continue. Corn planting is essentially done except for wet pockets in certain fields.
Tyler Williams, Extension Educator in Lancaster County: Harvest is rapidly progressing with most of the soybeans out and about 70% of the corn out. Corn yields have been very good and soybean yield reports have been fairly average. I haven't seen much movement of anhydrous applicators or fieldwork, but that should get rolling any day.

Michael Rethwisch, Extension Educator for Butler and Polk Counties: This week I sampled alfalfa for alfalfa weevil larvae in several counties. Most larvae were very small, indicating that the hatch was very recent, and more weevil larvae should be expected.
