Heavy rain that drenched southeast Kansas earlier this week did some good for the region's corn crop.

Dennis Elbrader, Cherokee County agent for the Kansas State Extension Office, said the storms dumped about three inches of rain in the area. The moisture could help yields.

The storms rolled through late Sunday and early Monday.

Other crops could also benefit. The rain would likely be a boost to the growing soybeans.
