We'd like to share those pictures with you: E-mail Meghan Pedersen to have your photo or video considered for this blog, including your location and a short caption.


 

Rain, Rain Come Our Way!

May 31, 2012

Much-needed rain rolled across the Midwest May 30-31, and some of the northern Corn Belt received rains May 25-26. But while such rains will sustain the corn crop for now, much more is needed to recharge soils and get top- and sub-soil moisture levels back to normal. See this week's  Drought Monitor and Palmer Drought Index for a better idea of what areas are especially dry.

Because photos are much more interesting than text, I asked Pro Farmer Twitter followers (#pfnews) to send me shots of their rain gauges on May 31, and several responded (some with a sense of humor). Check out shots from the Corn Belt and Texas below, and by all means keep the pictures coming! You can tag me to your photos in your tweets (@MeghanPedersen) or e-mail them to me at mpedersen@profarmer.com.
