LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska's farmers have used the relatively dry weather across the state to catch up on the corn harvest.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says 55-percent of the corn had been harvested by the end of last week, matching the yearly average by this date.

The harvest lagged the average by 12 percentage points the week before. The corn condition was rated at 68-percent good or excellent.

The USDA report says the soybean harvest was 94-percent complete, six percentage points ahead of the 88-percent average by this date.
