Million-dollar rain: June timing key for crops
June 25, 2020
COLFAX – June rainfall is already above average, promising excellent conditions for crop growth.
"We're in good shape," said USDA Soil Conservation Technician Dave Weber. "It's really been a great summer for growing."
While May rainfall was above average, it is the June rainfall, the timing of it, that is key to crop growth.
"Timing is everything," Weber said.
As of June 22, Weber had recorded 1.42 inches of rain at the office in Colfax. Historical average for the month is 1.3 inches. With a predicted 30% to 50% chance of rain in the last days of June, that total may increase.
