Last week’s rain was much needed, but it did halt fall harvesting for many.
Producers continued harvesting corn and soybeans, according to the latest National Agriculture Statistics Report for New York State.
Yields varied depending on soil type and rain received.
Not much hay cutting was reported because of the rain and hay cutting is expected to be winding down in the coming weeks.
Apple and the majority of the grape harvest is winding down as well.
Blocks of later ripening varies of grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon are expected to be harvested in the coming week.
Small grain cover crops planted this fall to date look excellent.
