Nebraska's fall harvest is in full swing, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture says farmers are making good progress.

The USDA issued its weekly crop progress report on Monday. Nebraska's harvest is in line with the average pace.

That means about 11 percent of the corn has been harvested. And about 20 percent of the soybean crop and 80 percent of the dry bean crop had been harvested.

The USDA estimates that 73 percent of the corn crop is in good or excellent condition. That's behind last year's 82 percent and the average of 75 percent at this time of year.

About 78 percent of the soybean crop is in good or excellent shape. That's better than last year's 77 percent and the average of 74 percent.
