Heat and humidity has Nebraska in its grip and, while that might be bothersome for us, it’s good for the crops.
The USDA reports recent warm weather has helped crops developed in Nebraska. Corn pollination has begun with 84% of the state corn crop rated in good to excellent condition, better than the average of 76%. Wet weather in the south has delayed the wheat harvest. The USDA says wheat harvest in Nebraska lags about 10 days behind average. It is only 10% complete.
