Missouri wheat conditions mixed
The USDA says February was a little warmer and drier than normal in Missouri.
Winter wheat conditions were mixed with 41% of the crop rated good to excellent, up 2%, but with 9% in poor to very poor shape, an increase of 4% from January’s update.
Half of the state reports surplus topsoil moisture and more than a third of Missouri has excessive subsoil moisture.
The USDA’s weekly crop progress and condition reports resume in April.
