TODAY ON AGDAY

APRIL 26, 2013

 

RAPID WARM UP AND FLOODING:

GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. IT'S A MURKY MUDDY MESS IN MANY PARTS OF THE MIDWEST AS RESIDENTS WORK TO RECOVER FROM SOAKING RAINS AND HEAVY FLOODS.

CROP WATCH:

MANY PLACES HAVE RECORDED RECORD RAINFALL THIS MONTH. IN CHICAGO THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAYS IT WAS THE WETTEST APRIL EVER. FARTHER NORTH, STATES ARE SETTING RECORDS NOT FOR RAIN BUT FOR SNOW. MIKE HOFFMAN HAS MORE IN TODAY'S CROP WATCH.

DROUGHT MONITOR:

AS MIKE SHOWED US, DROUGHT CONTINUES TO SUBSIDE IN MUCH OF THE COUNTRY.

WHEAT ABANDONED:

START GREASING THE SWATHERS. THAT'S THE MESSAGE OKLAHOMA STATE WHEAT SPECIALIST JEFF EDWARDS IS SHARING. HE SAYS THE WINTER WHEAT CROP TOOK ANOTHER HARD HIT THIS WEEK FROM FREEZING TEMPERATURES. A BLOOMBERG SURVEY OF CROP ANALYSTS SHOW FARMERS ARE LIKELY TO ABANDON AT LEAST 25 PERCENT OF THEIR HARD RED WINTER WHEAT. WE'LL KNOW MORE IN A WEEK TO TEN DAYS.
