Last year we had the wettest year on record in this area,even with 3 of the driest months on record (to that point) Then we had a wet late winter/early spring, followed by the driest/hottest summer ever in this area. One month we're behind on rain, next we're way ahead, then behind again. All I know is now it's the driest I ever remember it being. We've had several rains since September, a couple really good, slow soaking rains. But there's NO subsoil moisture. Even with a good rain, a day or two later and we have dusty conditions again.
I rented what was an alfalfa field for next year. All we do is no till ordinarily, since that's the best yielding, and it deals with dry summers a lot better than conventional tillage, but it is so compacted from being a hay field for the last 10 years, I thought I'd hit it with a chisel plow. That's out of the question for the time being. One pass and I thought the chisels were gonna start making sparks and set the place on fire...Couldn't get more than a couple inches in the ground. 7-shank chisel dang near stopped a 160hp mfwd tractor in it's shadow. Ground is harder'n times in '29.
