Rain is on the way for parts of farm country, but will it be enough?
Some relief from ongoing drought could be on the horizon following rain and severe weather last week in parts of the Corn Belt.
Eric Snodgrass, an atmospheric scientist with Nutrien Ag Solutions says more is on the way. He says parts of farm country could see two to three inches of rain, but where he lives in East Central Illinois, moisture is off by as much as seven inches so far this year.
The forecasted rains will help but he says moisture deficits will take a lot more than that to fix.
Right now, the U.S. Drought Monitor shows varying conditions across much of the Midwest. Portions of Southwest Missouri continue to show some major ag damage after missing out on rains earlier this week.
