Check it out:

August rains, after a dry July, came just in time to fill corn ears and set soybean pods, says a University of Missouri agronomist.

“Timing of these rains could not be better,” says Bill Wiebold with MU Extension plant science. “These rains set the table for excellent possibilities.”

Rains fell, and continued, in a large midsection of Missouri starting Wednesday night, Aug. 6. Rains of 1 to 3 inches fell on cropland in an area from north of Highway 36, from Saint Joseph to Hannibal, and to I-44 from Joplin to St. Louis.
