LOCAL AND AREA CROP AND CATTLE REPORT – AUG. 7, 2018


Widespread showers are needed to reverse the slow depletion of subsoil and topsoil moisture. We were very fortunate to have rain earlier in the season that gave us mostly adequate to surplus moisture which is sustaining us now in most areas. Crops are beginning to show stress in some areas while there are isolated areas that have plentiful moisture from unseasonable rainfall. Producers continue to spray for pests and cut hay. There were 5.9 days suitable for field work. Topsoil moisture rated 6 percent very short, 34 percent short, 55 percent adequate, and 5 percent surplus. Subsoil moisture rated 7 percent very short, 32 percent short, 57 percent adequate, and 4 percent surplus.

For the week ending August 6, 2018, Crossville has picked up 46.45 inches of precipitation since January 1, 2018. So far this is 11.59 inches above normal.
