Planting of row crops will be starting soon.  Across the state, farmers had hopes of rain to help with the germination of both the already planted small grains and the soon to be planted crops.   Winter wheat needs moisture as conditions declined last week with 10 percent very poor, 8 percent poor, 34 percent fair, and 48 percent in good to excellent condition; compared to 1 percent very poor and 52 percent in the good to excellent condition the previous week. Eight percent of winter wheat acreage  was lost to winter kill and 2 percent of the remaining acres reached the boot stage as of April 8th. Barley was at 27 percent seeded, up 19 percentage points from last week, with 1 percent emerged. Oats were reported at 50 percent planted and 16 percent emerged.  Spring wheat was at 52 percent planted and 25 percent emerged.  Corn was at 2 percent planted as of April 8, 2012.
