Meteorologist says a 3rd straight soggy harvest is unlikely
A meteorologist says he’s not expecting a third straight year of wet harvest conditions. Eric Snodgrass with Nutrien Ag Solutions tells Brownfield the long-range forecast looks nothing like 2018 or 2019. “Those setups that gave us the wet harvests the past two years are not there this year, now that doesn’t mean we can’t get something different, but right now, I’m not seeing the same kind of weather conditions coming in there.”
Snodgrass does expect more moisture later in the winter. “We could get some decent moisture. I’m not too concerned yet about this upcoming winter and a lack of moisture. You know, usually when we’re worried about a multi-season drought situation setting up, we have to start that in winter and spring and at this point, there’s no early signal that we should be worried about that.”
Snodgrass says the upcoming winter could be a real character builder with more rain and snow events than usual.
