Farmers reported nice yields on practically every crop in 2014. So, how did the year stack up with local rainfall?
To answer that question, we’ve researched the data collected in several reporting stations scattered around Henry County.
The reporters are local farmers and homeowners who use a special rain gauge to measure precipitation to the nearest one hundredth of an inch on a daily basis.
The reporting system is CoCoRaHS, short for the Collaborative Community Rain, Hail and Snow network.
