Knox County, NE

Start Date: 5/21/2017 - End Date: 7/6/2017
Pastures are drying up and the grass is turning brown very fast. Alfalfa crop has been considerably less than normal. Looks like there will not be much if any third cutting to take off. The corn crop is dying also. looking worse and worse every day. By next week with this heat most will be done. Burnt up!! We have not had any real rain for at least 6 weeks now in Knox County.
