While there have been some hints of dry ground beginning to show up on the drought map in South Dakota, other places are still too wet to work and that includes us right here in the Watertown Area and pretty much all of Northeast South Dakota.

 Dan Meyer farms near Wilmot. He says he is still sitting and waiting......

Meyer says he fought wet ground last year too.......

Meyer says the problem is too much ground water......

 Much of the northeast part of the state sits in a closed basin with very little rapid drainage.
