  • Moisture Updates - October 18, 2023

    Since the last report on October 4th, 2023, reasonable rains, for this time of year, have continued to fall across much of the Southern Region and about 60% of the Central Region along with the west-half of the North West Region. In fact some parts of the Southern Region and Central Regions have received above normal rain fall for this time of year. However, this is a normally dry time of year and above average moisture while beneficial, is still not enough to reverse long standing moisture deficits. It does, although bring hope to those that have suffered long running moisture deficits and begins to fuel some optimism for the 2024 cropping season.
