Some Midwestern farmers say that drought has improved this winter, but substantial relief could be weeks away.
Jay Reiners is chairmen of the Nebraska Corn Board and says his area has had some snow. “But, that doesn’t break a drought. The drought won’t get broken until we get rains in April and May. That’s always a double-edged sword. We want rain, but we don’t wan too much rain. It sure can rain in June and July.”
Iowa Corn Growers Association President Dennis Friest says he’s concerned about weather-related planting delays.
