Optimism about Nebraska’s dryland corn crop is fading fast

Some farmers in the Western Corn Belt say they’re losing hope for their dryland crops.

“Nebraska corn crop is taking a big hit.  The whole state is either drought or replant or whatever. It’s in bad shape.”

Jay Reiners farms in south-central Nebraska near Hastings and tells Brownfield some crops are unable to be irrigated. “Lot of replant corn that’s even irrigated is pollinating right now in the heat.  There are a lot of pivots upside down that are unavailable for use right now.”

Southwest Nebraska farmer Jan TenBensel says rain showers have been sparse.
