(Neb.) - Storms delay field work in Nebraska

By: John Thayer Posted at: 04/18/2012 06:51 AM
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say rain-laden storms have delayed field work in Nebraska but have raised soil moisture levels.
    
The U.S. Department of Agriculture report for last week says a survey shows about 4 percent of the expected corn crop has been planted, compared with 2 percent last year and 1 percent on average.
    
The department also said three-quarters of the expected oat crop has been planted.
    
The winter wheat crop was rated 63 percent good or excellent.     

Spring calving was 88 percent complete.
