Drought conditions in the state of Missouri has improved after a period of heavy rain and snow.
Wrap: Dave Murphy, Executive Director of the Conservation Federations says for several years the state has been behind on more than eight feet of rain fall.
Murphy says the recent snow storms and rain has given moisture to the soil and has improved drought conditions.
|Description: "Although we haven't completely recharged the aquifers and the water supply, it does appear that we have some relief from the drought."
Murphy says with consistent rain fall, farmers could see a better crop production this year. Murphy says he lost 50-percent of his yield last year, but is expecting better results this year.
