Ohio farmers say they need rain

Due to the hot and dry weather, Ohio farmers are concerned about the deterioration of their crops. USDA state statistician Cheryl Turner says that only 33% of farmland has sufficient rainfall, but 49% has low rainfall and 17% has very low rainfall.

Both corn and soybeans show signs of stress, and both crops are deteriorating in overall condition, USDA reporters say.

95% of Ohio’s soybeans are in bloom. Corn has not advanced to the silking stage. Eighty-two percent of oats went. 92% of winter wheat is mature and 47% is harvested for grain.

It contains most of the hay from the first crop, and 34% of the second crop of alfalfa is cut along with 33% of the hay of the other second crop.
