MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin farmers are wrapping up their corn harvest well ahead of schedule.

The National Ag Statistics Service has issued its final progress report on the Badger State’s crops.

94 percent of the corn for grain was harvested as of Sunday – 25 percent more than the normal for mid-November.

Yields have varied greatly, even with the same fields – and despite the drought, numerous reporters said the quality of their corn was better than expected.

The latest government estimate has Wisconsin harvesting 431 million bushels of corn for the year, 17 percent less than a year ago.

Farmers have completed 72 percent of their fall tillage work – the most by this date in the 30 years in which tillage records have been kept.

Half of Wisconsin’s farm fields remain short or very short of moisture.
