Coming off the worst drought in more than half a century Nebraska farmers are once again preparing for a dry spring and summer. The unrelenting drought gripping the state shows no sign of going away anytime soon.
Last week's drought monitor showed severe drought across 100-percent of the land area in the state.
Without rain or heavy snow before spring, millions of acres of wheat could be ruined.
But Nebraska Agriculture Director Greg Ibach says despite the dry conditions, agriculture is still doing well in the state.
"Our farmers and ranchers have been able to take advantage of the strong world demand for their commodity products and so we've seen a great profitability in agriculture," said Nebraska Agriculture Director Greg Ibach.
Over 50-percent of the contiguous United States is still in at lease moderate drought.
