A Western Kansas farmer says a dire situation continues in his region as a crippling drought enters its third year.
“It’s like a desert.”
Gary Millershaski tells Brownfield he’s received 5-and-half inches of precipitation in 14 months, including a recent snowstorm. “We’re sitting on a time bomb that trust me, I love the moisture, but .40 to .60 hundredths of moisture melted in a gauge won’t even soak up.”
He says there hasn’t been any soil recharge and all of the CRP has been grazed for emergency relief, but that’s not his biggest concern.
