Weather affects much of state Texas

Freezing temperatures and hail affected much of the state during the week ending April 27, reaching from the Panhandle all the way to South Texas, according to the National Agricultural Statistics Service, Texas Field Office, April 28.

Later in the week, hot temperatures and high winds increased the potential of wildfires. Moisture was scarce across the state, with scattered areas of the Northern Low Plains and Cross Timbers receiving upwards of 1 inch of precipitation.

Freeze and hail damage to small grains in the Panhandle and the Edwards Plateau ranged from mild to severe, prompting some producers to graze out or bale the remainder. In the Blacklands, wheat was mostly headed.

Producers in the High Plains and Northern Low Plains were pre-watering in anticipation of planting the upcoming cotton and corn crops. Corn planting in North East Texas neared completion. Freeze damage impacted corn from the Blacklands to South Central Texas. Some cotton replanting was active in areas of the Upper Coast that received significant frost and hail damage.

Vegetable planting progressed in North East Texas. Pecans in the Trans-Pecos were in the pollination stage, whereas pecans in the Cross Timbers and Edwards Plateau experienced some frost and hail damage. Some peaches and apples in the Trans-Pecos had buds nipped back by frost. In South Texas, spinach harvest was active and producers prepared potato fields for harvest. Cabbage and onions also made good progress.

Supplemental feeding slowed in the Blacklands and North East Texas as pastures and forage greened up. Ranchers in the Trans-Pecos were branding and working calves. Many pastures and stock tanks remained in need of moisture as high winds depleted soil moisture.
