Dry weather continued for most of Illinois this past week as we hear in this weekly crop report.
State Crop Statistician Mark Schluessner says it was another dry week as crops continued to dry out in anticipation of the harvest getting into full swing.
Schluessner says the soybean crop declined slightly with the crop ahead of last year's pace and the five-year average.
Corn has nearly completely reached the dent stage and the harvest is underway - in line with the five-year average.
Pasture conditions declined this week and Schluessner updated the soil moisture progress.
Winter wheat has reached eight percent finished and the third cutting of alfalfa hay is 93 percent finished, in line with the yearly average.
