Kentucky Agricultural Situation Report (AgSitRep):

Agricultural Situation Report: November 30, 2015
(USDA's Crop Report with comments from Tom Priddy & Matt Dixon, UK Ag. Weather)

Agricultural News: Kentucky experienced above normal temperatures and rainfall over 
the past week. Precipitation for the week totaled 1.15 inches, 0.10 inches above 
normal. Temperatures averaged 50 degrees for the week, 6 degrees above normal. 
Topsoil moisture was rated 1 percent very short, 7 percent short, 73 percent adequate 
and 19 percent surplus. Subsoil moisture was rated 1 percent very short, 10 percent 
short, 78 percent adequate, and 11 percent surplus. Days suitable for fieldwork 
averaged 4.0 out of a possible seven. Many producers have completed their grain 
harvest. However, there were a few fields remaining to be harvested in some 
locations. Tobacco stripping continues to progress well. Pastures are holding steady 
at mostly good to fair condition. Livestock are reported to be in mostly good 
condition with fall breeding taking place. Hay and roughage supplies were reported as 
1 percent very short, 8 percent short, 82 percent adequate, and 9 percent surplus.

This past work week started off with very cold temperatures carrying over from the 
previous weekend. The majority of the state woke up to readings in the upper teens 
to low 20s on Monday morning, roughly 15 to 20 degrees below normal for this time of 
the year. The good news is that a warming trend then followed through the 
Thanksgiving holiday. By Thursday, temperatures were peaking in the mid 60s to 
around 70 behind breezy southerly flow. After a dry week, a cold front slowly worked 
through the area over the weekend. A plume of moisture led to periods of widespread 
rainfall. Overall, totals diminished farther east. Western Kentucky averaged over 2 
inches of rainfall, while much of the eastern half of the state only saw a little 
over a half inch.
