An Eastern Nebraska farmer says he recently received the most rain since June, but it was only a half-an-inch.
Quentin Connealy farms an hour north of Omaha along the Missouri River and says Thursday’s storm brought some relief to extreme drought. “Caught a couple of tenths here in August and July. But it’s amazing that a half-an-inch makes you feel pretty good and catch up on some bean irrigation.”
But, he tells Brownfield, the moisture won’t affect the corn crop.
