Farmers May Find Dry Conditions Heading Into The Fields

Farmers in much of eastern South Dakota who are gearing up for spring planting might find dry conditions when they head to the fields.

The U.S. Drought Monitor shows that the southeastern corner and much of far eastern South Dakota have moved into the “abnormally dry” category. That’s a step below moderate drought conditions.

State Climatologist Dennis Todey reports that since the beginning of the year, areas have received low moisture.

But Todey says he isn’t too worried because spring typically is the wettest time of year, and there could be a lot of precipitation into June. But he also says the dry conditions have increased concerns about wildfires.
