Continued Rain and Wet Conditions Persist Across NYS
New York Ag Connection - 11/06/2018
New York averaged 2.0 days suitable for field work, according to the USDA's National Ag Statistics Service.
Cold temperatures set in, ranging from 4 degrees below normal to 5 degrees above normal. Weekly precipitation ranged from .36 to 3.52 inches. Continued rain and wet conditions persisted, preventing many operations from making much progress on corn and soybean harvest as well as winter wheat planting.
Soybean harvesting was particularly hard hit as the ground was too wet for combines. For producers in the few areas not impacted by wet conditions, yields have been positive.
Long Island vineyards have completed their harvest and began cleaning up this past week.
