Drought is not a problem for Iowa farmers this spring
A farmer in downtown Iowa says constant rains have so far eliminated drought problems. Lee Tesdell tells Brownfield: “I would say that the moisture in our soil is now fully replenished.”
Tesdel Farms in northern Polk County. He says drought was a problem last summer, but conditions have changed for the better. “When the creek rises from the shores, it’s obvious that the tiles are working pretty hard now,” Tesdel said. “They are buried in a creek. The flow is not visible. “
Recent drought monitoring in the United States shows that only a few small outbreaks remain in Iowa.
