Wisconsin’s crops endured another hot and dry week.
As of Sunday, USDA reporters say soil moisture is 52% adequate, 36% short, and 12% very short with no areas reporting a surplus. Subsoil levels are drier. Nearly half the state saw no new rain last week, and much of what did fall was in the eastern and northeastern parts of Wisconsin.
Ninety-eight percent of the corn is done silking, with 77% in the dough stage and 21% dented.
