More time needed for Wisconsin's corn harvest to be finished

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - It might be a while before the Wisconsin corn harvest is finished.  

As of Sunday, only 74 percent of the state's corn for grain has been brought in. That's 12 percent more than a week ago, but still 5 percent behind the average for the past five years. 

Many crop reporters say that some corn is still too wet to harvest -- and those farmers might have to wait for the ground to freeze to complete the job. 

The soybean harvest is doing better. 93 percent of the Wisconsin beans are in. However, that's still 5 percent below the average for the past five years.
