Producers in the Panhandle reported that fieldwork would be limited until a significant rain event happened as soil moisture was short. The district needed rain, and the fire danger remained high. Some areas still have not received any precipitation since the start of the year. Wheat and alfalfa was under irrigation, and pre-irrigation was underway for corn planting.
