OMAHA — Nearly half of Nebraska's corn crop has been planted, but farmers remain far behind planting averages.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture reported Monday that as of Sunday, Nebraska farmers had planted 46% of the corn crop. That's behind 68% last year and the five-year average of 72%.

Farmers had planted 20 percent of the soybean crop, behind last year's 37 percent and the five-year average of 32 percent.

The USDA says 58% of the winter wheat crop's condition was rated good and 29% fair. Only 4% was rated poor or very poor, and 9% was excellent.
