A wet, rainy morning was an early morning welcome for many.
Especially for farmers.
Burleigh County Extension Agent KaSondra Staiger STY-ger calls this a million dollar rain for many producers.
During the past 2 weeks, she says many areas have become extremely dry, damaging this year's grains and hay production.
Staiger says this rain will benefit all crops, especially the barley, wheat and corn because now is a critical development time for our grains.
(KaSondra Staiger / Burleigh Co. Extension Agent) "When you have crops that are forming their kernels and they are getting to the point where they are determining how many kernels they are going to have in that cob, when you don't have adequate moisture you can see between a 10 and 25%, reduction in yield."
Staiger says the southern part of the county was the driest before the rain.
