Calendar pages move, but planters don’t
(Did not issue a report for the week of April 21)
Yet another soggy, frigid week delayed the start of fieldwork and planting statewide. Some areas of northern Wisconsin received significant snowfall, while cold rain left water standing in fields across the south. Temperatures were well below average and growing degree days lagged behind normal. Hay and winter wheat reportedly remained dormant across much of the state. Statewide, spring tillage was 1 percent complete, compared to 42 percent last year and a five year average of 25 percent. This represents the latest start to spring tillage in the past 30 years of Crop Progress data. Topsoil moisture is rated 39 percent surplus, 56 percent adequate, with the subsoil moisture at 15 percent surplus and 62 percent adequate.
