By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 08/27/2013 08:43 AM
     LINCOLN, Neb. (ASSOCIATED PRESS) - The condition of the corn crop in Nebraska and nationally has declined slightly as a late summer dry hot spell settles in over Midwest states renewing fears of a crop damaging drought.
     The Department of Agriculture says in Monday's weekly report that 44 percent of dry land corn is in good or excellent condition, down a percentage point from a week ago and lower than the 59 percent average.
     Nebraska irrigated corn is 81 percent good or excellent compared to 79 percent a week ago.
     Nationally a slightly larger percentage of the corn crop slipped into poor or very poor category.
     Nebraska soybeans are now 6 percent poor or very poor, up from 5 percent the week before. A slight decline also is reported nationally.
