More Rain…. soggy

Posted by romeethredge on April 18, 2014

It’s has been a wet April and it’s just the 18th. Our normal rainfall for the whole month is 3.8 inches and usually 2.5 by this point in April. But this year we have received 11.25 inches and there’s more coming today. It has slowed field operations considerably. Also, we have seen a good bit of erosion in fields and some damage to crops that are up such as corn and snapbeans.

We had some of the fastest falling rain I have seen when we received 4.88″ of rain in an hour and 15 minutes on April 7th. Here are some photos of problems.

Mitchell county agent Andy Shirley and I were checking out this corn that was washed badly recently.
