Nebraska farmers continue to make good progress on the corn harvest, while rain and snow slowed most field operations last week.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture says in the weekly crop report on Monday that the corn harvest is 87 percent complete. That's behind last year's 93 percent but ahead of the average of 66 percent. The harvest is nearly complete in the eastern half of the state, but only half finished in the Panhandle.
The report says 78 percent of the corn is in good to excellent condition.
The USDA says rain and snow that fell in the middle of last week slowed field work. Snow fell in portions of western Nebraska last Wednesday, with rain in the south and southeast on Thursday.
