By Randy Jemison, USA Rice

CROWLEY -- Wet weather was  the theme in the midsouth this past week and Louisiana was no exception.  The northern part of the state dodged the bullet this time, but a lot of rice, and other crops - soybeans and crawfish - have been impacted in central and south Louisiana.  The hardest hit areas seem to be in Avoyelles, Evangeline, and St. Landry parishes.
