A Western Kansas farmer says drought destroyed his entire winter wheat crop and now it won’t stop raining.
“We’ve gone from having the driest three- year period of my lifetime to now having 20 inches of rain since May.”
Jim Sipes tells Brownfield the moisture was too little too late. “We had nothing. It didn’t come up out of the ground. It didn’t come up until May, and then it wasn’t fertilized so it didn’t produce any grain.
