CLAY CENTER, Neb. (AP) -- Nebraska farmers are being advised to plan for another growing season of drought.






The Hastings Tribune (http://bit.ly/SpyBq4) reports that state climatologist Al Dutcher estimates Nebraska has a 70 percent chance of a second consecutive year of drought.






Dutcher told those attending a gathering of beef producers in Clay Center on Tuesday that 8 to 10 inches of moisture more than normal would be needed to break Nebraska's drought.






The Drought Mitigation Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln says most of Nebraska remains in extreme or exceptional drought.






Dutcher says he thinks "everyone should really have a good drought plan in place."
