Soybeans affected by lack of rain in Piatt County, Illinois
10/31/2017 2:39:58 PM



CATEGORIES:
Agriculture
AFFECTED AREAS:
Piatt County, IL

Start Date: 10/23/2017 -  
Without the rains in September and October, the bean yield has been affected. Now, today, we have had a heavy rain and fields are very wet. It will be several days before soybean harvest and continue. Grass is green and growing. A growing concern is that there is natural gas that has leaked into the Mahomet Aquafer. CoCoRaHS Report from Station #Monticello 6.5 WSW on 10/23/2017
