Corn Belt soils remain dry, as winter approaches
NORTH DAKOTA: Days suitable for fieldwork 4.1. Topsoil moisture supplies 11% very short, 35% short, 53% adequate, 1% surplus. Subsoil moisture supplies 26% very short, 37% short and 37% adequate. Stock water supplies 22% very short, 37% short, 41% adequate. Pasture and range conditions 31% very poor, 34% poor, 22% fair, 13% good.

SOUTH DAKOTA: Days suitable for fieldwork 6.2. Topsoil moisture 53% very short, 30% short, 17% adequate. Subsoil moisture 68% very short, 20% short, 12% adequate.
WISCONSIN: Days suitable for fieldwork 6.0. Topsoil moisture 14% very short, 37% short, 45% adequate, and 4% surplus.
Most Cornbelt states are still in drought conditions, with very low levels of top soil moisture and general absence of moisture in the subsoil. The issue now becomes whether there is enough moisture for the winter wheat crop, and that is questionable.
