Start Date: 2/4/2018 -  
Producers in Garfield County have not received significant precipitation in three months, leaving wheat pasture unable to provide much grazing for livestock. Due to the persistent drought, some producers were considering switching from wheat to another crop for the year, according to Josh Bushong, Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service northwest area agronomy specialist. Producers were waiting to topdress their fields with nitrogen, but need rain after the application to incorporate it into the field to be most effective. Enid News & Eagle (Okla.), Feb. 4, 2018
