South Texas drought is relentless

That’s the way Dan Fromme, assistant professor and Texas AgriLife Extension agronomist at Corpus Christi, describes the persistent drought that has devastated cropland and pastures for the last two years and promises to do so again in 2013.

But it really goes back farther than that, Fromme says. “If we look back to 2006, we had drought that year, and also in 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2012. And we are in our third straight year of drought now.
