After Delivering a Blow to the Coast, Isaac Delivers Needed Rains

The remnants of Hurricane Issac actually brought several days of rain to the nation’s midsection – giving farmers a much needed break. Parts of Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana and Missouri received several inches of rain – with some spots reporting more than a half-foot of rain. As far as corn and soybeans are concerned – the rain came too late to make much difference. Farmers have been harvesting corn for weeks and the soybean crop is too far along for the rain to significantly improve quality or growth. Some farmers actually worked feverishly to bring in their crops before the storm due to fears that strong winds or flash flooding could destroy what they managed to salve from the drought.
