It’s time for a timely rain

Area farmers are nearing the stretch run on planting. Many producers are finished already, while others expect to be done within the next week or so.

The reports I’m hearing all indicate the crop is off to a good start — but that a nice widespread rain is needed soon. People involved in production agriculture talk about ‘timely rains,” or precipitation that comes at crucial times in crops’ development.

A timely rain this week would be terrific.
