USDA NE Crop Conditions 9-27-15

Sept. 28, 2015
For the week ending September 27, temperatures averaged six to eight degrees above normal with an inch or more of rain common across a wide swath of central and eastern Nebraska, according to the USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service. Silage cutting was coming to a close. Soybean harvest gained momentum but was slowed due to wet soil conditions. Seed and high moisture corn harvests continued as soils dried. Dry conditions in many western counties allowed winter wheat seeding to progress, as did dry bean and millet harvests.

Topsoil moisture supplies rated 7% very short, 24% short, 63% adequate, and 6% surplus. Subsoil moisture supplies rated 6% percent very short, 25% short, 66% adequate, and 3% surplus.
