Nebraska wheat rating up sharply on year
What a difference some precipitation can make.
The USDA says 69% of Nebraska’s winter wheat crop is in good to excellent shape after improved precipitation during January, well above the 48% reported a month ago and the just 22% called good ago.
Soil moisture levels improved, but drought remains a persistent issue in parts of the state.
The USDA’s weekly crop progress and condition reports resume in April.
