Abundant rainfall spring

With over 200 ml (12 inch) of rainfall in southwest Uruguay last weekend spring has had a wet start. Nationwide rainfall was half of this volume. On an annual basis rainfall is 6 times this volume. This abundant rainfall in recent days is affecting both the condition of winter crops and also the seeding of summer crops. Weather forecasts for the next two weeks show sunny and warm days which will allow seeding of soybeans and recovery of wheat.
