Ohio Crop Picture Looking Good

posted by Mike Smith/Will Parr -

Ohio's two big agriculture crops look hit a five year average this summer as to how much has already been planted.

Ohio Agriculture Director David Daniels says of this year's corn crop is already in the ground, with most "first planting soybeans" as well. This does not count the "second crop soybeans" which are planted after the wheat is harvested.

Daniels says the state is also known for 200 other specialty crops that bring in big money to growers. These include tomatoes, onions, carrots, radishes and grapes for wine production, which brings in $1.3 billion to the state's agricultural economy.
