CROP PROGRESS

2020 Crop Progress


These are the current conditions for Ohio as of February 23, 2021.

This time of the year the majority of crops are not in the ground. This does not mean that the weather isn’t currently playing a vital role in our 2021 growing season. The USDA gives monthly reports on our growing conditions December-March rather than the weekly report. 

These are the current conditions for Ohio as of February 23, 2021. 

Northwest Ohio is still drier than other parts of the state due to a lack of precipitation. Recent snow cover helped to protect winter wheat from sub-zero temperatures. There was no report of issues with livestock in the cold weather, but producers have some concern that the ice and snow, with mud to follow, could add some struggles.
