Excerpt from Crop Production: June, 1959
Oats seeding was practically finished by mid-may in the most northern sections. By June 1 fields were heading in the Ohio River valley and Central Great Plains, with stands in the latter area often poor and uneven and insects and disease prevalent. Harvest in southern areas was underway in late may, but combining in the extreme Southeast was confined to sporadic bursts between showers as many fields over-ripened, weathered and lodged. California barley harvest, well along in the southern portions, moved north ward to central portions of the State. Outturn on the irrigated acreage was favorable, but poor dryland yields reflected the prolonged lack of rain. In central United States, harvest was underway as far north as Kansas. In the East nearly all the acreage south of Kentucky and Virginia was either turning color or ripe. Rye conditions declined in the central and northern Plains as additional moisture supplies failed to overcome the effect of thin Spotted stands. The rice crop, virtually all seeded by June 1, shows normal early development. Flax harvest was two-thirds finished in Texas, but about a third of the acreage in the extreme northern producing sections remained to be planted.
