Nebraska corn, soybeans still ahead of schedule

LINCOLN, Neb. -- Nebraska's corn and soybean harvests are still ahead of schedule, but winter wheat growth has fallen behind.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture said in its weekly crop report Monday that the statewide corn harvest is 80 percent complete, one month ahead of average. The soybean harvest was nearly 86 percent complete, about three weeks ahead of average.

The report says winter wheat seeding is nearly 95 percent done, but less than half of the winter wheat crop has emerged. That puts it two weeks behind the average schedule.
