The U.S. Department of Agriculture says in its weekly crop, livestock and weather report that barley is 92 percent jointed and 62 percent in boot stage, which are ahead of the five-year averages.

Durum wheat advanced to 85 percent jointed, ahead of 2 percent last year and 4 percent on average. Spring wheat at 90 percent jointed and 62 percent boot stage is also ahead of pace.

The USDA says temperatures were near normal across parts of the south and below normal across the rest of the state. Precipitation was above normal in parts of the southwest, central and northeast and below normal elsewhere.
