Drought Conditions Worse In The Dakotas Over Week

Drought Conditions Worse In The Dakotas Over Week
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Drought conditions continue to worsen in the Dakotas.

The latest U.S. Drought Monitor map shows 96 percent of South Dakota is mired in some form of drought, up more than 4 percent over the week. Nearly 88 percent of North Dakota is in drought, up about 7 percent.

Conditions are worse in South Dakota, where about 45 percent of the state is in extreme drought and another 5 percent is in exceptional drought. North Dakota has no areas in either category, though more than one-fourth of the state is in the severe category.

Federal Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack this week announced nearly $12 million in additional aid for 22 states including South Dakota to help farmers and ranchers apply conservation practices that reduce the impacts of drought.
