Fatigued farmers brace for possible drought – MSN

Hot, dry conditions in North Canterbury are making farmers nervous that another drought is looming.

A wet winter pulled the area out of three years of drought but Hurunui District councillor and farmer Vince Daly said unseasonably hot and dry conditions over the past four weeks meant crops needed for winter feed weren’t growing and water reserves for irrigation were quickly running out.

He said they had experienced a number of 30 degree days over the last month, which they didn’t usually get until January or February.
