Nebraska's crops continue to mature slowly because most of the state experienced another cool week.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says the Panhandle was the only area of the state to record above normal temperatures last week.

Most of the rest of Nebraska say high temperatures in the 80s and lows in the 40s.

But the USDA says 77 percent of Nebraska's corn crop is still in good or excellent condition.

That's better than last year's rating of 75 percent good or excellent at the same time of year.

And 77 percent of the state's soybean crop also rated in good or excellent condition at the end of last week.

Last year, 69 percent of the soybeans rated good or excellent at the same time.
