Nebraska soil moisture levels dip

Warm, dry conditions for most of February have had an effect in Nebraska.

The USDA says soil moisture levels across the state declined, while still holding at early 2023 levels, with only about a third of the state in some form of drought, compared to nearly all of Nebraska this time last year.

60% of winter wheat is in good to excellent shape, 9% lower than late January, but 41% higher than this time last year.

The USDA’s weekly crop progress and condition reports resume in April.
