What Was In Your Rain Gauge This Morning?
It sure was nice to receive that rain Tuesday as it was desperately needed. The rain was widespread but the amounts varied a lot. That has been the pattern this year but at least this time pretty much everyone received beneficial rain. Most of the spring and summer someone got a nice rain and maybe just down the road there was very little or none!
This rain will help the corn and soybeans but it would have been great if it had come a week or two earlier. Last week you could see areas of lighter soil where the beans were turning yellow and the corn was firing and turning brown. The rain was likely too late for those areas. However, where the corn and beans were still green the rain will really benefit yields!
