Wheat in most areas needs moisture

Texas

Southeast Texas received up to 0.5 inches of rain while the rest of the state received little to no rain during the week ending Jan. 4, according to the National Agricultural Statistics Service, Texas Field Office, Jan. 5.

Wheat in the High Plains, Northern Low Plains, and Cross Timbers was in need of moisture and growing slowly. Cotton harvest in the High Plains was completed shortly before Christmas and yields were low. Cotton harvest continued in the Northern Low Plains with below average yields. Corn producers in the Blacklands, who had not fertilized for 2009 planting, were looking at alternative sources of fertilizer due to soil conditions being too dry for anhydrous ammonia. Sorghum harvest was complete and yields were low in the Northern High Plains and good in the Northern Low Plains. Pecans in the Cross Timbers and Edwards Plateau showed poor yields. Supplemental feeding of livestock took place across most of the state. Pasture and range land continued to be very dry and was in need of rain across most of the state. Top soil moisture was mostly very short to adequate across the state.
