Nebraska's corn and soybean harvest is roughly a month ahead of normal this fall, but the continued drought has hindered the winter wheat crop.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture said Monday that this year's harvest continues to run on a different schedule in Nebraska.

About 89 percent of the corn crop has been harvested. That's well ahead of the usual 37 percent average.

The soybean harvest is roughly 95 percent complete. That's also ahead of the average of 75 percent done at this time of year.

Nearly all the winter wheat crop has been seeded, but only about 58 percent of it has emerged because of the dry soil. Normally, 87 percent of the crop has emerged.
