Scotland County Records 10.5 Inches Of Rain In May

April showers bring may flowers, but May showers don't bring much at all as far as area farmers are concerned. With the 1.29 inches of rain in the final week of the month, Scotland County farmers were nearly shut out of the field during the important planting season.

Above average temperatures and a couple back-to-back sunny days finally allowed producers to return to planting on June 1. But most of that work was limited to higher ground as the bottom fields are still reeling from the 10.53 inches of rain that soaked the area between May 6 and June 2.

While it's hard to imagine that 10 inches of rain in May is lucky, but it could have been worse. Two neighboring counties had even more precipitation. Knox County recorded 11.55 inches of rain from May 6 through June 2. Adair County was only .07 inches from the worst rainfall amount in the state of Missouri, trailing only Jasper County with 16 inches of precipitation during the recording period.

Clark County escaped with only 7.71 inches of rain over the same time-frame and Schuyler County got off the best of all with a mere 6.6 inches of precipitation.

According to the National Agriculture Statistics Service, northeast Missouri farmers have only 78 percent of the corn crop planted and just 38 percent of their soybeans in the ground, well behind last year's pace.
