Mycotoxin & Crop Report: Mostly Dry Weather Prevails [VIDEO]

Extreme heat combined with dry conditions in the Southern plains brings significant stress to crops

This week's headlines for Neogen's Monday Mycotoxin & Crop Report for August 15:

  • Heavy showers fall across the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic and Southeast
  • Mostly dry weather prevails across the Central and Southern plains
  • Small grain harvest advances

The USDA’s August 9 bulletin reports heavy, but spotty rainfall across the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern regions.

Many other areas of the country are still experiencing higher-than-average temperatures with minimal precipitation and dryer than average conditions persist in the Central and Southern plains regions.

The extreme heat combined with dry conditions in the Southern plains, brings significant stress to pastures and rain-fed crops.
