Dry weather aids corn development
Very little, if any, precipitation, was received last week across the state, which continued to speed the crops along in their development.
Temperatures were more moderate last week, with the statewide average temperature being below normal for the first time since early July.
There were 6.8 days suitable for fieldwork last week across the state, making it a good week to put up good quality hay.
The corn crop advanced to 87 percent dented, compared to the five-year average of 61 percent.
