Hot, dry periods are common during most growing seasons in the southeastern United  States. Weather data may indicate that rainfall was adequate for crop production during a  given month; but if the bulk of the rain falls during a one­week period, the remainder of the month may be too dry for the crop to grow properly. On average, you can expect a 40  to 60 percent reduction in yields due to inadequate rainfall. The greatest losses in a  drought are usually in the marketplace because of poor quality and inconsistent supplies.
