Dry conditions across Nebraska are providing an opportunity for producers to get ahead on harvesting.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, as of Sunday, 34% of Nebraska corn was harvested. That figure is ahead of the average for this time of year, which is 22%.
Soybean harvest is racing well ahead of the average pace. Nebraska farmers would typically have about 40% of the crop harvested for this time of year, right now that figured is at 82%.
The Rural Radio Network visited with two eastern Nebraska producers to hear about harvest conditions on the ground.
