BOULDER — Farmers along Colorado’s eastern plains are dealing with worse conditions than initially expected. Nearly 50,000 acres of land in Colorado have failed due to dry conditions, according to the State Department of Agriculture. Last year, that number was around 27,000. While the Department of Agriculture can’t pinpoint where all of that land has failed, the department does say it’s likely all along the eastern plains.
