Crops ‘hanging in’ after hot, dry stretch

Warm and dry weather is having an impact on farms in the Sauk Valley. After a stretch of more than 4 weeks of cool, dry weather, temperatures across the state returned to normal last week, according to recent Illinois Weather and Crops reports from the National Agricultural Statistics Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. But the rain hasn’t come. “The dry conditions across the state continue to have a negative impact on the crop conditions,” according to the Aug. 26 report.
