Soil Moisture 5-31-18

So grateful to receive some rain across the area on May 29th!

Byron 5-31-18

This site received 0.78″ on May 29th.  The rainfall briefly increased the moisture in the first foot soil profile until high winds the next few days started removing it again.

Lawrence 5-31-18 corn

This site received 0.76″ on May 29 which also added moisture to the first foot briefly.  I decided to re-install the 2′ sensor to give a more accurate indication of the soil moisture profile since it is deeper than 2′ in the last two weeks’ charts.

This site also received 0.76″ which very briefly added moisture to the first foot but began drying out again with the winds.

Superior 5-31-18

This site received 1.30″ of rain on May 29th which allowed for moisture in both the first and second foot soil profile.
