A strong, quick-moving storm front developed north and west of Quincy this afternoon and pushed to the Southeast. Quincy received over a 1/2″ of rain in the storm which hit around 2:00 p.m. The front then pushed towards Pittsfield and Pike County. The plot received .25″ of rain from the short-lived rain event. A little bit is better than none, and the crop definitely benefited. Projections are for temperatures to be north of 90 degrees for the next several days, and high humidity.
The first plot signs went up this week as well. We invite you to stop by and take a look at the hybrids and how they are handling the dry weather and warm temperatures!
