“Contrast” the key word for Illinois harvest forecast

ILLINOIS (RFD) — The key word is “contrast” for the upcoming harvest season, according to DTN Chief Agriculture meteorologist Bryce Anderson.

Moderate to locally heavy rainfall is expected over the northern half of the state with drier conditions prevailing in the central and southern portion for the rest of this week and freeze concerns should not be an issue through mid-October.

Anderson says for the latter half of the month, he expects things to settle out and delays on harvest that we’re currently seeing over some parts of the state, should lessen.
