 The U.S. Department of Agriculture says Nebraska's harvests of corn and soybeans are lagging the average harvests completed by the date.

In a report for last week's Nebraska activity, the USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service says 19 percent of the corn has been harvested, compared with the average of 34 percent by the date. Forty-five percent of the soybeans has been harvested, compared with the average of 66 percent by the date.

The USDA says 95 percent of the expected winter wheat crop had been planted, compared with 91 percent for the five-year average by the date.
