Weather-crop bulletin No. 16
for Nebraska, for the week ending
July 22d, is as follows: "The week
opened with two or three days of
high temperature and hot winds,
which did considerable damage to
corn in the southeastern section of
the state. The remainder of the
week was cooler and more or less
showery. The temperature for the
week as a whole averaged slightly
below the normal in the western
part of the state and slightly above
it in the eastern. The precipitation
varies greatly in difterent sections
of the state, ranging from none at
all in some isolated localities to
over two inches in others. In the
extreme southeastern corner of the
state the drouth, which has con
tinued for several weeks, remains
practically unbroken. Further west
the rainfall continues to be abund
ant. In the northeastern section
the need of rain is beginning to be
felt. The small grain harvest is
ever3where well advanced and some
threshing has been done. In the
southeastern portion ol the state
corn has suffered considerable dam
age, especially the early planted,
some few fields of which have been
injured beyond recovery. But over
the greater portion of the state the
corn although somewhat backward
on the average is now growing fast
and the crop is very promising."
