“Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan the corn belt states.”
Are you freakin kidding me? Missing just a few of the big producers like Nebraska, Iowa, and Minnesota.
We had the worst drought I’ve seen last year here in southern Michigan but we aren’t exactly turning into a desert.
I just read that we’re about an inch and a half below normal precip for the first 3 months of the year.
Heh, yeah, that was a howler, wasn’t it. I think the writer was trying to say, of the seven states, these three are part of the corn belt. I expect to see even more corn planted around here this year, because the lower yield means more acreage has to be in cultivation; the corn rotation here (probably elsewhere) is with soybean, usually a year on - year off. It’s unusual to see any other grains because feed cattle mostly ceased to exist here, and dairy cattle is quite a specialty, no small-scale dairy farmers any longer.
