A warm week provided much-welcomed heat for Iowa's crops. Seasonal degree-day deficits largely evaporated over the 7 days from around 50 degree days behind last week to close to average statewide. However, moisture deficits are noted in some areas as well. Sporadic showers over the Memorial Day weekend were welcome, but some localities would welcome additional rain for growing crops.
