Wet Weather Delays Ohio Planting

Wet weather delays Ohio planting: Persistent rain and saturated soil conditions have delayed corn and soybean planting in much of Ohio thus far this planting season.

For the week ended May 5, only 2% of Ohio’s projected corn acreage was planted. In comparison, 20% was planted at that same time last year, and 27% is the five-year average for that time.

Soybean planting is also down, with only 1% of Ohio’s projected soybean acreage planted. In comparison, 7% was planted at that same time last year, and 9% is the five-year average for that same time.

so agronomists at The Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES) have published several recommendations about late-planted corn and soybeans in the latest edition of the C.O.R.N. Newsletter.

The newsletter is produced by agronomists with Ohio State University Extension, CFAES’ outreach arm, and can be found online at agcrops.osu.edu/newsletter/corn-newsletter.

Peter Thomison, an OSU Extension agronomist, and Laura Lindsey, a soybean and small grains specialist with OSU Extension, are two of several Extension experts who can provide insight into spring planting.

Thomison can be contacted at 614-292-2373 or thomison.1@osu.edu; Lindsey can be contacted at 614-292-9080 or lindsey.233@osu.edu.
