Drought Worsens - February 22, 2018 Report

';




Written by Sig Silber

It has not yet reached crisis levels but a severe drought is impacting many states including Oklahoma, Texas and New Mexico. Arizona and Southern California have also been impacted but they are likely to receive relief soon. This drought raises the risk of significant impacts to farming and ranching. Thus until the situation improves, we will be providing updates of the Drought Monitor which is issued each Thursday. The extreme cold in Canada has also had impacts on agriculture there. Although our focus is on the U.S., we will be reporting also on the situation Worldwide.
