Wisconsin farmers are getting better weather to grow their crops.
Officials say corn pollination was in full swing last week and soybeans were showing more maturity -- even though uneven conditions are still seen across the Badger State in the wake of the sporadic heavy rains and floods the past few weeks. The maturity stage for the Wisconsin corn is still 4-8 days behind last year, and 70-percent of the total crop is good to excellent -- unchanged from the previous week. Seventy-five-percent of the soybeans are good to excellent, one point higher than the week before. Fifteen-percent of Wisconsin potatoes are harvested, and 80-percent are good to excellent.
