Texas: Dry Conditions, Adequate Moisture For Cotton

AaronT
From USDA July 14, 2014

Summary

Hot and dry conditions persisted throughout majority of the state. Areas of South Texas and the Lower Valley received at least 1 inch of precipitation, while scattered showers totaling less than 1 inch were observed across areas of the Trans-Pecos, Edwards Plateau, South Central, and Upper Coast. The rest of the State received trace amounts of precipitation.

 

Small Grains: Winter wheat neared completion in the Northern High Plains, while in the Blacklands, wheat and oat harvest was complete. Producers began plowing wheat stubble in the Cross-Timbers.

Row Crops: Corn continued to mature throughout the Northern High Plains and Blacklands. In areas of the Coastal Bend, sorghum harvest slowed due to light rainfall, while producers in the Cross Timbers reported that the crop is suffering from dry conditions. Precipitation in areas of South Texas delayed corn and sorghum harvests, but provided proper moisture for cotton crops throughout the area. In areas of the Southern High Plains, cotton was progressing, though some producers reported intense insect and weed pressure. Cotton progress was slowed due to the intense thundershowers in late May. Peanuts continued pegging across the Southern High Plains. In the Blacklands, soybeans continued to progress. In areas of the Upper Coast, rice continued to progress with many producers preparing to begin harvest in the upcoming weeks.
