The average statewide temperature last week was slightly above normal at 73.8 degrees.
Though most districts received little to no moisture last week, some northern areas received above-normal rainfall for an average of 0.54 inches for the state. The norm for the period is 0.76 inches.
The rains helped some soybean fields, but in most areas crops remained in need of moisture. Under-filled pods and small beans were evident in a number of fields. Corn remained stressed.
