Most of the state receives some rain Texas

The week ending Sept. 22 began with warm and dry weather across most of the state, according to the National Agricultural Statistics Service, Texas Field Office, Sept. 23.

As the week progressed, however, cooler temperatures and much need precipitation were received. Last week, most of the state received at least 1 inch of rain, while parts of North East Texas, the Upper Coast and the Edwards Plateau received as much as 8 inches.

Early seeded wheat was off to a good start due to the added moisture. Additional seedings were ongoing except for parts of the state where they were delayed by the rain.

Cotton in the Northern and Southern High Plains progressed nicely with the added precipitation. Producers were preparing for defoliation in the coming week. Peanuts continued to mature in South Texas and were ready for harvest as field conditions allow. Producers in the Blacklands had to postpone the harvest of cotton, soybeans, sorghum, and sunflowers until fields dry out.

Watermelon harvest was completed for the year. In South Texas, pecan development continued to make good progress with no reports of insects. Seedbed preparation for cabbage and spinach will resume as field conditions allow. Heavy precipitation delayed sesame harvest in the Coastal Bend.

Fall calving was underway in the Northern High Plains. Many stock ponds in the Blacklands were full and running over. Range and pastures in the Blacklands, North East Texas and the Lower Valley were in good condition and appear to have benefitted greatly from the recent rains.
