MONROE - Fall harvests in many fields around Green County may end in a dry cough, after a spring and early summer of replenishing rains. Northern portions of Green and Lafayette counties now include areas considered to be in moderate drought, according to U.S. Drought Monitor data released Thursday, Sept. 12. Both counties also include bands of conditions considered abnormally dry, one step better than drought conditions.
