Tennessee farmers continue harvest between needed rains
Harvest progress was rapid in parts of Tennessee last week in between welcomed rains.
The USDA reports as of Sunday 97% of corn, 65% of cotton and 73% of soybeans are harvested. Winter wheat planting reached 63% complete with 36% emerged and 45% considered in good to excellent condition.
While rains did improve soil moisture and pasture conditions, many producers are still feeding hay to supplement pastures and eastern parts of the state remain extremely dry.
