The lack of rain and further drying of corn helped Nebraska farmers intent on harvesting their crop last week.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture said Monday that the corn harvest for grain is 36 percent complete and 28 days ahead of the average of 5 percent at this time of year.
The soybean harvest also has started and is about 19 percent complete, compared with 3 percent average at this time of the year.
The USDA says the proso millet harvest is about two-thirds finished and the sorghum harvest is about 4 percent finished.
The harvest of dry beans sits at 44 percent finished, compared with 48 percent average at this time of the year.
