KS farmers finally getting much-needed rain

SALINE COUNTY, Kan. Some Kansas farmers are finally getting the rain their crops needed all summer. But is it too late?

In Saline County, farmers and ranchers had some of the driest weather conditions in Kansas this summer but is expecting plenty of rain this week. Storm Team 12 says the Salina area will continue to over the next couple days.

Salina's K-State Research and Extension Office Ag Agent says the rain won't help crops like milo that will soon be harvested. But it will help farmers later on.

"This will replenish soil moisture and help get our wheat crop off to a good start," says Agriculture Agent Tom Maxwell.

Since Tuesday afternoon, Storm Team 12 says Salina received about 2.8 inches of rain. That's the most rain they've seen in a day so far in 2017.
