Too wet ... now too dry?
PRINCETON — The hot and dry weather conditions this summer haven’t been too hard on Bureau County crops so far, but it would be nice to give them a good drink of water, according to Ag View FS staff agronomist Ben Johnson.
Johnson said Bureau County is sitting in a good place compared to other parts of the Midwest with local farmers able to get their crops in the field in a more timely fashion than in other areas. Though Bureau County was wet with its spring rains, that early moisture is what has carried the crops through to this point. But, it would be nice to get a good rain shower before long, he said.
Bureau County did get some rain on Monday evening and early Tuesday morning, but that rain totaled only about 0.07 inch, according to records kept at the Princeton Water Treatment Plant. The crops could still use another bigger drink of water, Johnson said Wednesday morning.
