Dry soils dominate crop progress reports
In Wisconsin, topsoil moisture was over 70 percent short to very short in five of the nine reporting districts. Crops were stressed and development has reportedly halted in some areas due to the lack of moisture. Corn is rated 8% poor, 26% fair, 51% good, and 12% excellent. Soybeans are rated 8% poor, 27% fair, 53% good, and 9% excellent.
While the entire Corn Belt is short of moisture, and well behind typical averages, the lower two-thirds of the Corn Belt is abnormally drying with frequent reports of crop stress at a time of shoot development and tassel development. Much of the early planted corn is ready to tassel, and the two week period prior to that event is important for moisture supply to corn. The northern tier of Corn Belt states have improved moisture situations, and are reporting 60% or more of their corn in the good to excellent category.
