Video: Montana Mega Drought! - Do We Replant Wheat??? 2022

Montana Mega Drought! - Do We Replant Wheat??? 2022 Today Dad and I are checking our winter wheat fields and they are not looking good. There was a lot of winter kill from high winds and lack of moisture. We typically get about 12 inches of precipitation annually but last year and so far this year we are less than that. Our neighbor Dave stops by with his cute dog to see what is going on. Some parts of the fields are growing, but we have huge bare spots. We just need rain now. The big question is do we re-seed or just see what happens? Dad digs around and he can see some seeds are sprouting and some are not. Did we plant too deep or not deep enough? This is not a farming simulator! It's the real thing! The wind blows the topsoil around too, which can impact seeding depth as well as the high winds blowing the soil. I am learning a lot about our crops today and the regional news about our neighbors' crops! Thank you for watching my video!!!
