Drought is releasing its stranglehold on many Midwestern fields.
Iowa Ag Secretary Mike Naig says while there are still some moisture deficits in his state, particularly in the northwest.
“We have seen significant precipitation over the winter months. In fact, it ranks as one of the wettest winters in Iowa’s recent (history), 150 years or so, of weather records. So that’s good news.”
He tells Brownfield Iowa is introducing a drought plan this year.
