Michigan Ag Connection - 11/17/2020

The majority of the State experienced unseasonably warm temperatures accompanied by multiple precipitation events, according to Marlo Johnson, director of the Great Lakes Regional Office of the National Agricultural Statistics Service. There were 5.1 days suitable for fieldwork in Michigan during the week ending Sunday.

Significantly warmer temperatures allowed for continued incremental progress in harvest and fieldwork efforts between showers. Corn and soybean harvest progression continued on as weather allowed. Corn harvested for grain was at 85 percent with a reported moisture content of 18 percent. Soybean harvest was at 96 percent with a reported moisture content of 13 percent.

Winter wheat approached full emergence at 96 percent and a reported 64 percent of the crop was rated in good to excellent condition. Other activities included crop-marketing, harvest trucking efforts, and equipment maintenance.
