South Central Nebraska farmer Randy Uhrmacher says his soybean yields have been significantly impacted by drought. “On the dryland, it’s looking it’s 50 percent below last year’s soybeans. On the irrigated, I’m going to come in and say early estimates between 10 and 15 percent below last year’s yields.”
But, Uhrmacher says, he received a half-an-inch of rain this week and that has stalled his progress. “Just sitting and waiting for the sun to come out so we can cut again.”
He tells Brownfield the moisture will help get his cover crops growing.
