March 2012
Western Farm Press Exclusive Insight;3/27/2012, p1
The article discusses the California Crop Weather report from the National Agricultural Statistics Service Field Office in Sacramento, California that was released on March 26, 2012. It noted dry and mild conditions due to a high pressure ridge that moved across California which pushed clouds and showers away at the start of the week of March 18, 2012. Later in the week, a low pressure center developed in the offshore trough, resulting in rainfall that brought over an inch of rain.
