The heavy rain we’ve been experiencing has led below average crop numbers in the region as farmers are having trouble harvesting and planting crops. That’s according to the USDA’s Crop Progress and Condition report released on Monday. While soybean planting has increased recently statewide, rain and flooding continues to hinder fieldwork. The report indicates there are about 4 million acres of unplanted soybeans this year, about half of the state’s soybean crop. Many in the Ag industry are concerned about the impact the rainy weather could have on a farmer’s income as well as the state economy. The growing season in Missouri ends in August.
