April Rainfall Well Above Normal For Much of Corn Belt

April 30, 2013 06:53 AM

Meteorologist Gail Martell of MartellCropProjections.com says corn planting remains on hold across much of the Corn Belt as conditions are either too cold or too wet.

"The southern two-thirds of the Corn Belt is extremely wet, in the wake of heavy April rainfall -- 2-3 times the normal amount," she notes.

The following 30-day precip map provides a reminder of the wet start to the spring planting season:
