John Wilson, Extension Educator in Burt County: Conditions here are wet. We got 2.5 inches of precipitation last week and another 0.5 inch Tuesday. Harvest is at a standstill with less than 10% of the corn and soybeans having been harvested. Alfalfa and pastures look great.
Troy Ingram, Extension Educator in Greeley County: We have been extremely dry here for about the past eight to nine weeks, receiving only about 0.75 inch of rain in that period. Dryland corn on lighter soils is in very bad condition. I don’t think rain will help it at this point. Some beans are still holding on, also depending on soil type. Pastures are also suffering.
