Harvest Wrapping Up Across Southern Plains
Fall harvest was moving along in Oklahoma despite the rainfall. Much of the state received measurable rainfall last week, with the highest recorded at 2.35 inches in the South Central district. Other districts received less than 2 inches in precipitation. Corn harvest reached competition on Sunday. Sorghum harvest was at 92 percent by week's end, 3 points ahead of normal. Soybeans reached 85 percent complete, peanut harvest reached 91 percent and cotton harvest jumped 13 points from the previous week to 56 percent harvested, but was 12 points behind normal. Winter wheat seeding reached completion across the state Sunday. The winter wheat crop rated six percent in excellent condition, 48 in good, 35 in fair and 11 percent in poor to very poor. Some operators in the southeast district began grazing cattle on small grains.

Many northern and central areas of the state experienced snowfall and freezing temperatures.
