Recent storms brought some relief to historic drought for a few farmers in the Great Plains.  

“It definitely made it so we could have some moisture to plaint into, but it’s not a drought buster my any means.”

Central Kansas farmer Brian Sieker tells Brownfield his farm received up to an inch of rain, but it’s still too dry to begin planting. “I moved quite a few acres from corn to milo because of the lack of profile.”

South Central Nebraska farmer Mike Bergen says he planted some corn before a storm on Tuesday night.
