The USDA’s September 6 bulletin reports late summer rains in the South-Central U.S. fell too late to be a benefit for a majority of crops.

However, topsoil conditions are improving in many states, providing good planting conditions for fall crops.

Hot, dry weather persists across much of the West and Central Plains.

Favorable dry weather and near average temperatures developed in the Southeast following recent heavy precipitation.
