Drought on Mississippi River and farmland

Drought on Mississippi River and farmland

Drought now covers more than half of the lower 48 states but few have it as rough as Arkansas, where the entire state is listed as suffering from lower than average precipitation. These images are from north eastern Arkansas. From the air you can see the damaged corn crops, the sparse soy bean crops. Irrigated row crops are able to hold up better than non-irrigated crops, but at a great cost. Most farmers are harvesting early, and turning under what can't be harvested. Also the ground is so dry that the tractors leave behind several hundred yards of dust in the air as they go.
