TODAY ON AGDAY
SEPTEMBER 7, 2012

DROUGHT MONITOR:

Good morning I’m Tyne Morgan in for Clinton Griffiths. The slow-moving rains from Hurricane Isaac eased drought over areas of the south and Midwest, but escaped some regions that could use the quenching.

The latest U.S. drought monitor shows a two-category improvement in some areas of the cornbelt. But other places - like the Great Plains - are still struggling. The drought monitor reflects the ten inch rainfall in Louisiana and the soaking rain in much of the lower cornbelt. But overall the map shows the area of the United States in moderate drought or worse actually increased. In Nebraska, for example, the portion of Nebraska in exceptional drought jumped to 71% this week from 23% the previous week

LSU HURRICANE:

While Hurricane Isaac soaked dry soils in parts of the Midwest, it also brought damaging winds and rains to the south. In this report provided by LSU AG Center, Tobie Blanchard shows us that even though damage has been done, it's not to the extent as many had expected.

CROP WATCH:

Today's cropwatch will start in the cornbelt, but we'll also get a status check on potato harvest in Colorado.

Plus we'll see how things are progressing along the eastern seaboard. Mike Hoffman has those stops in cropwatch, mike.

FC STONE:
