A soybean grows at John Sam Williamson's farm. Soybeans should be planted in May and then need about an inch of rain each week from June through October in order for them to yield the best crop, Williamson said. As of Wednesday, he had planted about two-thirds of his crop, but had lost 5 percent of it to recent flooding, he said.
