CROP WATCH:

THE TEXAS AGRILIFE EXTENSION SAYS ITS STILL EXPECTING A BELOW NORMAL WHEAT CROP DESPITE RECENT RAINS. AGRONISTS THERE SAY FARMERS HAD TROUBLE WITH STAND ESTABLISHMENT IN THE FALL. THEY CALL STANDS SKIMPY AND WEAK. WHILE SOME AREAS LOOK PRETTY GOOD, THE EXTENSION AGRONOMIST IS WORRIED PARTS OF THE WESTERN AND NORTHERN PLAINS MIGHT NOT MAKE A CROP. AND FROM JOHN MORGAN IN MISSOURI--THAT'S TYNE MORGAN--OUR NATIONAL REPORTER'S FATHER,  HE SAYS HIS PART OF WESTERN MISSOURI GOT SIX INCHES OF SNOW FROM THIS STORM IN JUST A FEW HOURS.
