Record Warmth But Crops Getting Thirsty

June 19, 2012, 6:22 PM by Ben Cathey

Record Warmth But Crops Getting Thirsty

Across the Midwest, we've seen both the warmest spring on record and the warmest start to the calendar year.  This is both good news and bad news for crops.

Plants are emerging ahead of schedule across the region, but with our dry conditions, their development could be in jeopardy.

Storm and soil data show that Gregory/Charles Mix Counties are impacted the most by dry conditions. This month alone, those areas are three inches below normal. It is difficult to pinpoint just how far behind different areas are because most rain gauges are in towns and crops vary on how much water they need.

We think some areas will see about a half inch of moisture in this latest round of rain.  While this will help, it's a short-term fix. Crops will soak up this rain in just a few days.
