Wisconsin crops remain dry as corn and soybeans enter critical growth stages.
USDA statistician Greg Bussler says topsoil moisture statewide is rated 29% very short, 42% short, 29% adequate and there are no reports of excess moisture. Subsoil moisture levels are also very low.
Despite the dry weather, there were some scattered light showers around Wisconsin last week which helped the corn condition improve by one point to 45% good to excellent. The driest region is in central Wisconsin, and there were reports of up to two inches of rain southwest of Madison and between Eau Claire and the Twin Cities.
