Areas of Wisconsin (Finally) See First Hard Freeze of 2021
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 10/26/2021

The extra-long growing season finally came to an end in northern areas of the Badger State last week after the region experienced its first killing frost. According to the Wisconsin Ag Statistics Service, daytime temperatures were above normal across the state. The agency's weekly crop report also noted that dry weather allowed many farmers to finish their fall harvest activity.

Topsoil moisture conditions were rated two percent very short, 12 percent short, 83 percent adequate and three percent surplus.

As of Sunday, 48 percent of the corn for grain was harvested. That was five days ahead of last year and 11 days better than the five-year average. The moisture content was reported at 20 percent. Most farmers say they were now finished chopping corn for silage this fall.

Nearly three-quarters of all the soybeans in Wisconsin have been run through the combines--five days behind the 2020 crop year, but nearly a week ahead of normal.

Winter wheat planting reached 93 percent complete, with 74 percent emerged.

And those who do fall tillage have worked up 44 percent of their fields so far, which is almost two weeks ahead of average.
