Although rain starting this weekend has stopped harvest, farmers still made progress throughout the week.

“An early fall week with daytime temperatures in the mid-70 degree range allowed farmers to get a good jump on fall harvest and winter wheat planting,” Cheryl Turner, state statistician for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistics Service, said in a release. “Farmers reported an exceptionally nice week weather-wise with favorable temperatures that benefited livestock.”
