November 12, 2014

(Undated)  --  Farmers in Fulton County as well as the rest of the state are making progress in harvesting their fields.  Crop Statistician Mark Schleusener says they had a good week last week, but they're still a bit behind compared to last year.  The harvest is 87-percent complete, compared to 92-percent one-year-ago.  Ninety-one-percent of soybeans has been harvested, down from 96-percent this time last year.  Sorghum is right on target with the five-year-average, at eighty-three-percent complete.  Winter wheat planting advanced by 15-percentage points last week and now stands at 84-percent complete.  Fifty-two percent of the crop has already emerged.
