first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Saturated soils and continued heavy rains last week kept farmers out of fields in Ohio, according to the USDA, NASS, Great Lakes Regional Office. There were 1.3 days suitable for fieldwork for the week ending June 28th. Saturated soils and continued rains throughout the state have brought on numerous concerns for producers. Standing water has led to disease, projected yield losses, and weed pressures. The muddy, saturated fields have prevented producers from being able to spray, fertilize, or continue to make hay. “Prevented Planting” acres are being registered throughout the state. Yellowing of field crops continues. Hay producers have noted quality is sub-par as to hay is too mature. Livestock producers noted the animals are in very mucky conditions. Sunshine and dry weather would be appreciated statewide.View Ohio’s crop conditions herelast_img
