Earlier this week, snow fell across different parts of Texas. But, it didn’t do much to help drought conditions in the South Plains region. After a dry 2020, farmers and other agriculturists hope for more precipitation this year.
On Wednesday, there was still snow on the ground at the Texas A&M Agrilife Extension Center, just north of the Lubbock airport. The South Plains may be known for cotton, but they also grow several other crops at the center for research.
