Field and Garden: Abundant moisture, all eyes on thermometer


June 27, 2022

The Carrington REC received 11.9 inches of precipitation between April 1 and June 20. That is 6 inches above normal.

McHenry received even more rain, 14.9 inches, during the same period. That amount is the highest among 155 reporting stations across the state.

The wet weather delayed planting. As a result, our corn and soybeans are slightly behind normal in development for this time of year.
