Minnesota farmers who still have corn in their fields made limited progress toward harvesting it last week.

In its weekly crop weather report for Minnesota, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said Tuesday the corn harvest was 93 percent complete as of Sunday, up 2 percentage points from a week earlier.

The report says some producers with corn remaining in their fields were continuing to harvest as conditions allowed, while others will wait until spring to finish. The remaining corn acres are generally high in moisture or inaccessible due to snow.
