Indiana sees turn to colder temperatures in January
A warm start to 2022 for Indiana has generally given way to colder conditions.
The USDA says the average statewide temperature and precipitation are both a little bit below normal and the lack of snow cover in some areas is leading to concerns about stress for winter wheat.
64% of Indiana’s winter wheat crop is in good to excellent condition, steady with late December, while 27% is rated fair, up 1%.
Livestock are reportedly in good shape, despite the turn in temperature.
Nearly 80% of the state has adequate soil moisture.
The USDA’s weekly crop progress and condition reports resume in April.
