Wis. slides back into drought
MADISON, Wis. (AP) – A lack of rain has Wisconsin sliding back into drought. The Wisconsin State Journal reports (http://bit.ly/17NOf5U ) the western part of the state is already in a drought, and the National Weather Service could classify parts of southern Wisconsin in a drought this week. Agronomist Stan McGraw says the lack of rain could cut soybean and corn crops by 10 to 15 percent. That would still give farmers a decent harvest, although not the near record one that experts predicted after spring rains gave the plants a good start.
