For the week ending June 21, 2015, rainfall of one inch or more occurred in many areas with temperatures averaging near normal, according to the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. Storms damaged crops in portions of the west with some replanting necessary. Hay harvest continued to be a challenge. Wet meadows in north central counties were saturated, many with standing water. Fields too wet to plant were still being reported in portions of the southeast.
