Here an update on moisture for the 2018 winter wheat crop.
For those not familiar, here is a map of where hard red winter wheat is produced in the United States.

Below is a map of the rainfall that has fallen in the winter wheat belt in the last two weeks.
The seven day rainfall amount forecast (in inches) reveals that additional rains are forecast.
