Last week, some much-needed rainfall provided relief from the hot and dry conditions of the previous weeks.
Statewide, precipitation averaged 0.71 inches, still 0.19 inch below the norm, but more than double what the previous three weeks had averaged.
Temperatures also moderated slightly, to 66.3 degrees, 1.4 degrees below average for the week.
Producers were busy side dressing corn and spraying fields now that many have completed planting corn and soybeans.
