Video: Eleven Months of Drought Maps

As drought conditions plateaued for most of the state, producers were wrapping up the cotton and grain sorghum harvests and hoping for rain to help moisture-stressed wheat and winter small grains, according to Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service county agent weekly reports.

Though conditions were certainly an improvement over last year, drought persisted in most of the state, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor. The biggest improvement was in levels of severe, extreme and exceptional drought, which were 98 percent, 89 percent and 65 percent respectively on Dec. 15, 2011.
