If you are experiencing dry conditions, I would really appreciate feedback on any agricultural impacts that you’re seeing at your farm. For example, are pastures stressed, or is corn starting to curl? Maybe your crops are doing just fine, which is also good information to have. You can email those impacts to firstname.lastname@example.org or use the Kentucky Drought and Hydrologic Impact Reporter.
For Central Kentucky, there are deficits in the 1- to 2-inch range over the past couple weeks (map below) and shallow soil moisture profiles are taking a downhill turn. I’m not raising an alarm yet, but it’s something to watch moving forward (more below).
