I farm in northern Minnesota and this past fall I noticed that swamps I have farmed around for as long as I can remember were absolutely bone dry and I could run the combine into and across them without worry of getting stuck. The only reason we got relatively better than average yield on corn and beans was due to the ground water....lower ground was outstanding, lighter ground and hillsides were nothing to bother with...just pick up the head and move out....but all that ground water is now gone. We should have 2 to 3 foot of snow on the ground about this time of year and we barely have 2 to 3 inches of snow. If we don't start receiving some precip soon, I going to be wishing I could have my 2012 crop in 2013 again. Could be a very ugly scenario on the horizon.

Lack of subsoil moisture is a big concern and that was a prime weather topic at the DTN/Progresssive Farmer Ag Summit this week.
