 This report is brought to you by the University of Nebraska – Lincoln Extension and the Lower Loup Natural Resources District.  

These crop water use predictions are based partly on the water use of the last three days, but mostly on the historic average. If the current weather forecast differs much from these, be sure to adjust the water use predictions. Values are for 2500 growing degree day corn and 2400 growing degree day soybeans. To use this information your fields should be within 60 miles of the weather station listed, and at the same stage of maturity.
