EATHER conditions in Wisconsin
during June were favorable for small
grain, hay crops, and pIasture, but were
too cloudy and rainy for good corn
growth and interfered somewhat with
the planting of corn, potatoes, tobacco.
and other lalte planted crops. During
.Juiie Wisconsin received more thain the
normal amount of moisture with fre-
nILit moderate to heavy rains over the
stat., The northwestern    and south-
eastern portions of the state have re-
ceived more than the normal amount
of itioisture since January 1, whil, tll
othir sections are below normal. How-
ever, the soil is saturated with the June
raillns id in many sections the soil is
so wet that crops in sonie fields havi
been dl(rownvieId out.
