WISCONSIN NEWS ROUNDUP: Major farm crops in better shape thanks to much-needed rain
Wisconsin's major farm crops are in better shape, thanks to a heavy dose of much-needed rain. Officials say 71-percent of the state's corn is in good-to-excellent condition, along with 72-percent of the soybean crop. Both figures were in the 60's for most of the summer. Chippewa County had five-and-a-half inches of rain last week. Buffalo County had five inches, Portage County four, and Vernon County three. Much of it soaked into the ground.
