Drought Could Effect 2013 Crops

Wed, 02 Jan 2013 12:59:54 CST
(Springfield)--The midwest is recovering from a massive drought in 2012, which could impact Illinois crops this year. Executive Director of the Illinois Corn Growers Association Rodney Weinzierl says the biggest concern is getting ready for planting. He says subsoil moisture is dry more than six inches below the surface in northern Illinois, and more than two feet in central Illinois.

Weinzierl says crops and trees will suffer if there is no rain for two to three weeks, because soil hasn't been replenished from the 2012 drought.
