Tennessee crops: 23% corn, 2% soybeans planted
Unusually cool temperatures and heavy rains in Tennessee last week delayed fieldwork and several touches of frost and freezes did damage some of the state’s fruit crops. Twenty-three percent of the state’s corn crop has been planted and 3 percent emerged. Two percent of soybeans have been planted. Eighty-seven percent of the winter wheat crop has jointed and 26 percent headed. Sixty-four percent of the crop is rated good to excellent.
Sixty-nine percent of apples are in full bloom. Those are expected to have fared better than some of the ornamentals in last week’s weather.
Sixty-five percent of pastures are rated good to excellent.
100 percent of Topsoil and Subsoil are called adequate to surplus.
