Usual Planting and Harvesting Dates for Wisconsin Field Crops

Crop Weather Report

Usual planting and harvesting dates for major field crops appear in this report. The "usual planting dates" are the times when crops are usually planted in the fields. For transplanted crops, such as tobacco, the planting period refers to the time of setting plants in the field. The "harvest dates" refer to the periods during which harvest of the crop actually occurs. They do not extend through the subsequent period in which some commodities are stored in the field after harvest.
