MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A lack of rain has Wisconsin sliding back into drought.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports the western part of the state is already in a drought, and the National Weather Service could classify parts of southern Wisconsin in a drought this week.

Agronomist Stan McGraw says the lack of rain could cut soybean and corn crops by 10 to 15 percent.

That would still give farmers a decent harvest, although not the near record one that experts predicted after spring rains gave the plants a good start.
