Timely and widespread rains improved crop conditions and increased soil moisture in Wisconsin last week. USDA statistician Greg Bussler says along with that rain, a few storms caused crop damage due to wind and hail.
Topsoil moisture levels are now 1% surplus, 55% adequate, 36% short, and 8% very short with similar subsoil readings.
Sixty percent of Wisconsin’s corn is silking and about a day behind the five-year average. Five percent is in the dough stage.
