Indiana Farmers Report Slow Going on Harvest
Indiana Ag Connection - 11/23/2021

Harvest progressed last week but was hampered in some areas due to cold, wet field conditions, according to Nathanial Warenski, state statistician, USDA NASS, Indiana Field Office. Soil moisture levels were nearly the same as the previous week, with 96 percent of topsoil moisture reported as adequate or surplus. The average temperature for the week was 40.2 degrees Fahrenheit, 1.9 degrees below normal for the State. The amount of rainfall varied from none to 1.40 inches over the week. The statewide average precipitation was 0.64 inches, 0.08 inches below normal.

There were 4.7 days suitable for fieldwork for the week ending Sunday.

Corn and soybean harvest both moved closer towards their respective five-year averages, but still remained slightly behind schedule. Farmers in some areas were waiting for drier soils or the ground to freeze before they finished harvest. Farmers who had finished harvest turned their attention to fall tillage and fertilizer applications.

Livestock were moved to winter pastures with supplemental feed.

Other activities for the week included hauling grain, marketing livestock and fall equipment maintenance.
