Soil moisture adequate for 2/3rds of state fields
Published 04/10/2012, Pierce County Herald
-- About two-thirds of Wisconsin farm fields have adequate soil moisture, despite the dry surface conditions that have put the state at a big risk for forest fires. According to the year’s first crop report from the National Ag Statistics Service, only 24-percent of Wisconsin fields are short of moisture – and six-percent are very short. Another six-percent have surplus moisture. The rest are adequate.
