LINCOLN, Nebraska — The U.S. Department of Agriculture says below-normal temperatures, rain in the east and light snow in western portions of Nebraska slowed field work last week.

The USDA said in a report released Monday that 26 percent of Nebraska's expected winter wheat crop had been planted, compared with the five-year average of 27 percent for the date.

Corn and soybean conditions rated 73 percent good or excellent. Pasture and range conditions rated 54 percent good or excellent.
