Weather and Crop Report.
Yesterday's weather and crop report was kind of interesting from the moisture standpoint. A few people were reporting moisture as short, but not in the southeast where I thought they might still be a bit short. I am curious as to if some of the reporters are being sarcastic. 58% of the state reports adequate and 40% reports surplus. At this time of year if tile is running, you have surplus moisture. Rainfall has been above average and snowfall is also above average. Temperature is a bit below average, but pretty insignificant from and agricultural standpoint. No crop conditions were reported.
