Nebraska Farmers Advised To Plan For Drought Again

Posted: 25 January, 2013

CLAY CENTER, Neb. (AP) – Nebraska farmers are being advised to plan for another growing season of drought.  State climatologist Al Dutcher estimates Nebraska has a 70 percent chance of a second consecutive year of drought.   Dutcher told those attending a gathering of beef producers in Clay Center on Tuesday that 8 to 10 inches of moisture more than normal would be needed to break Nebraska’s drought.  The Drought Mitigation Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln says most of Nebraska remains in extreme or exceptional drought.  Dutcher says he thinks “everyone should really have a good drought plan in place.”
