This morning’s precipitation could give farmers something to smile about once crops are cut.
Greg McClure, Riley County Extension Agriculture Agent, says the rain might suffice for soybean production.
McClure adds that the recent heat did not disturb al l of the crops entirely.
“Grain sorghum crop can really hold on well,” McClure says. “It can handle heat and it actually likes heat.”
Crops aren’t the only thing on his mind.
