Dry conditions affecting Indiana

Dry weather is having an impact in Indiana.

The USDA says December’s statewide rainfall was below average by nearly an inch, leaving soil moisture levels much lower than a year ago, with the average temperature almost 9 degrees above normal.

Those warmer temperatures have helped the late planted portions of Indiana’s winter wheat crop, but more precipitation will be needed.

Hay is reportedly in short supply and some producers have already sold out for the season.

Other activities for the month included maintenance, grain hauling, and getting ready for taxes.

The USDA’s weekly national crop progress and condition reports resume in April.
