AbstractAbundant rainfall was the most prominent feature of the 1992 growing season. Monthly precipitation totaled above normal during the first five months of the year, and during August and December. Warm temperatures accompanied the wet weather during the spring planting season and helped boost growing season heat unit totals to near record levels in central and western Arizona. Early fall weather was warm and dry which provided excellent conditions for both finishing the crop and preparing the crop for harvest.
