Nebraska winter wheat rating drops

Nebraska’s winter wheat crop is showing the impact of drought in the Plains.

The USDA says 39% of the state’s winter wheat crop is in good to excellent condition, a decline of 25% from the end of November, while 42% is called fair, a jump of 19%, and 19% is reported as poor to very poor, 6% higher.

About two thirds of the state is short to very short of subsoil and topsoil moisture, with little relief in sight.

The USDA’s next state update is out on the 24th.
