(JACKSON, Miss). (WCBI) - For farmers, it's often not how much rain their crops get but when the rain comes.

Agriculture experts at Mississippi State say, Mississippi's soybean crop needs more moisture after a dry season.

MSU experts say, the recent rains and irrigation have helped but more rain is needed.

Many of the state's soybean farmers planted early and experts say, they should see the best yields.

Planting began in early March and continued through early July.

Mississippi planted 2.13 million acres of soybean this year.
