Fast-growing crops need rain

I talked with a veteran farmer who said he’s never seen his crops grow as fast as they have in the past two weeks. That’s a good thing: the crops were planted late and have a lot of catching-up to do.

The farmer also said the fast-growing crops sucked up most of the moisture in the soil. If they’re to continue developing properly, they’ll need more rain quickly.

Farmers talk a lot, and rightfully so, about the importance of timely rains during the growing season. Many parts of the region need a timely rain, and soon, especially after crops’ nice growth spurt.

  1. I wonder if the rising CO2 levels have something to do with the fast growth.
