Episode Narrative Dry conditions continued over much of southern and western Oklahoma, with average to below average precipitation again in March. A small saving grace were late month thunderstorms and an unseasonably strong winter storm. Although beneficial, the precipitation totals only put a dent in the precipitation deficit that has occurred since October. The overall dry conditions were having an effect on the wheat crop, and farm ponds were running low, making it hard to keep cattle on grazing lands. In some areas, wheat production was cut to almost a third of what would normally produced. Wheat prices fell sharply by the end of the month as a result of the dry conditions. The dry conditions were beginning to have an affect on the young cotton crop in southwest Oklahoma. In addition, grass fires were becoming more numerous as the normally expected green up was delayed. Numerous fires were reported over a large area, and burn bans continued for most of the month. Monetary damages estimates were not available.
