The U.S. Department of Agriculture says higher soil temperatures allowed some Nebraska farmers to plant corn last week.

A USDA report issued Monday said 5 percent of the expected corn crop was planted. That compares with 3 percent last year around this date and the five-year average of 4 percent.

About 60 percent of the wheat crop rated in good or excellent condition, 8 percentage points under last year but 2 points ahead of the average by this date.

About 71 percent of the oats crop has been planted, which is 7 percentage points ahead of the average planting by this date.
