Cooperative weather helps Nebraska farmers catch up on corn harvest last week


LINCOLN, Nebraska — Cooperative weather has helped Nebraska farmers catch up on their harvest of corn.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture said in its report for the weekend ending Sunday that relatively warm weather and limited rainfall made for excellent harvest conditions.

The USDA says 79 percent of the state's corn had been harvested by Sunday, equaling the five-year average by the date but a point under last year's figure of 80 percent. The department said in its report for the week ending Nov. 2 that 60 percent of the state's corn had been harvested, compared with 69 percent last year and the average of 71 percent by the date.

The latest report also said 79 percent of the winter wheat was rated good or excellent.
