Jeff Caldwell 08/09/2012 @ 10:40am Multimedia Editor for Agriculture.com and Successful Farming magazine.

Despite a few showers that moved through the Corn Belt over the last few days, the drought took another step in the wrong direction in the last week, according to Thursday's update of the U.S. Drought Monitor.

Now, the majority of the "I states" is under extreme or exceptional drought, with the latter category growing in Nebraska, Kansas, Indiana and Arkansas.
