It's dry in the Great Plains. Parts of the central and southern Plains haven't seen "normal" rainfall amounts in years, and the increasing dryness is taking a mounting toll on the region's farmers and crop potential.
Some speculate another 'Dust Bowl' is on its way, while others say today's farming practices and advancements in agribusiness are keeping the heat, dryness and blowing soil from taking the monstrous ecological, agricultural and social tolls on the region.
