A field of soybeans ready for harvesting.
Wet weather last week hindered harvest around Wisconsin, especially in eastern parts of the state.
Despite the wet conditions, harvest remains largely in line with the five-year average around the state, according to a weekly report from the Wisconsin field office of the National Agricultural Statistics Service.
Between 1.5 and 3 inches of rain fell in parts of the Kewaunee County last week, one observer stated in the report. That brought field work to a halt.
About 82 percent of the state's soybeans have been harvested, just off the five-year average of 85 percent. Corn for silage is listed at 97 percent harvested, 2 points behind the average, and harvest of corn for grain stands at 50 percent finished, 8 points behind the average.
Between 69 and 78 percent of soybeans have been harvested in north central and northeastern Wisconsin, while corn for grain ranges between 19 and 34 percent and corn for silage ranges from 95 to 99 percent complete, according to the report.
"Hay and roughage supplies were reportedly 26 percent short, 70 percent adequate and 4 percent surplus as of Nov. 3," the report stated.
