Agricultural News: Kentucky experienced below normal temperatures and rainfall over 
the past week. Precipitation for the week totaled 0.00 inches, 1.02 inches below 
normal. Temperatures averaged 43 degrees for the week, 2 degrees below normal. 
Topsoil moisture was rated 5 percent short, 89 percent adequate, and 6 percent 
surplus. Subsoil moisture was rated 1 percent very short, 5 percent short, 88 percent 
adequate, and 6 percent surplus. Days suitable for fieldwork averaged 5.8 out of a 
possible seven.

Fall harvest was helped along with an entire week of dry conditions and mostly sunny 
skies. High pressure was in control for most of the period, keeping the area rain-
free. Even a couple cold fronts ended up in mostly dry passages through the 
Bluegrass State. Looking at the 95-station database with the UK Ag Weather Center, 
only three stations recorded rainfall for the week and the maximum was three 
hundredths. Bottom line, the majority of the state did not see any rainfall and led 
to a second straight week of below normal precipitation. 

Primary activities for the week included harvesting corn and soybeans along with 
tobacco stripping. Farmers were finally able to get back in the fields this week as 
the weather stayed dry and temperatures were relatively mild. With that being said, 
the harvest of both corn and soybeans remains behind both last year and the five year 
average due to wet conditions through most of November. The percentage of tobacco 
stripped is on pace with last year. The current supply of hay and roughage is mostly 
adequate at this time and will be aided by good pasture conditions. The condition of 
planted winter wheat was reported as mostly good with seventy six percent of 
the crop emerged.
