Oklahoma Crop Conditions- No Drought Now Versus 76% of State in Drought One Year Ago

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 20:43:17 CDT

Oklahoma Crop Conditions- No Drought Now Versus 76% of State in Drought One Year Ago The Oklahoma Crop Weather Summary for August had a remarkable statement in the weather summary found at the top of the report dated August second. State Statistician Wil Hundl and his staff wrote "No areas of the state were experiencing drought, compared with last year at this time when 76 percent of the state was in some category of drought." The weekly summary showed that there is not a lot of difference in the top soil moisture profile this first week of August versus a year ago- as some heavy rains hit Oklahoma last July. The real difference seen is in the subsoil profile. In 2014- the subsoil profile stood at 40% adequate- nothing surplus versus the 64$ adequate to surplus seen in today's report.

The development of the Oklahoma corn crop is well behind a year ago- with the five year average of corn in the dough stage by this date standing at 71%- here in 2015- we are at just 28% of the crop at that point of development. The state's cotton crop is even with the five year average on the setting of bolls at 37%- but well behind where the cotton stood a year ago when 64% of the crop was setting bolls as we began August.

Pasture conditions continue to look much improved over a year ago- with 66% of the range and pasture conditions in the state in the good to excellent ratings.
