Warm, wet February for Arkansas


February was warmer and wetter than normal in Arkansas.

The USDA says nearly the entire state has adequate to surplus soil moisture levels, keeping many farmers out of the fields for most of the month, and above average temperatures have led to some fruit trees budding, leaving them vulnerable to a late frost.

Some burndown is underway, while livestock producers continue to feed hay and supplements as needed.

The USDA’s weekly crop progress and condition reports resume in April.
