Cooler Than Normal Temps Pushing Back Fieldwork in MN

Cooler than normal temperatures and additional snowfall across much of the State resulted in another week with no days suitable for fieldwork in Minnesota.


According to the USDA’s Weekly Crop Report, snow cover remains widespread across the State and most areas are still reporting frost in the ground and soil temperatures below normal for this time of year.


Topsoil moisture supplies were rated 1 percent short, 55 percent adequate and 44 percent surplus across Minnesota.
