Moisture helpful for crops but not enough to pull us out of the drought

Posted: Updated:

The moisture this weekend may have got farmers and ranchers excited but experts say it's too early to celebrate.

Gary Stone, an Educator with the University of Nebraska Lincoln's Extension says the storm this weekend brought some good moisture, but definitely not enough.

The majority of Nebraska is still in an exceptional drought.

To pull us out of a 2013 drought, Stone says it would take a lot more than a few inches of rain or snow.

Stone says farmers and ranchers should plan for the worst but hope for the best.

The U.N.L Extension Center offers drought mitigation resources and planning tools.
