Crop report for the week ending Nov. 23

Maryland had six days suitable for field work. Winter wheat planting continues behind schedule by 8 percent compared with both last year's and five-year average. Corn for grain harvest is nearly completed. Soybean harvest seems to be progressing better than the five-year average but is still behind schedule for last year because of the historic cold-weather conditions that occurred last week.
