Indiana crops could use more rain

Indiana farmers still need rain, even after getting some precipitation last week.  USDA’s State Statistician Nathanial Warenski says 51% of topsoil is now adequate or surplus, but the rainfall received varied from just under two-tenths of an inch to 4.3 inches, and most farmers need more rain for their crops.

Forty-Seven percent of the state’s corn is in good to excellent condition with silking behind schedule.

Soybean blooming is also behind, but 49% of the crop is rated as good to excellent.  About 4% of the beans are setting pods.
