The most drought-resistant crops often have been the ones that have triumphed in the Great Plains. Sorghum (or milo) was introduced on the Plains because it produces grain under the same drought conditions that cause corn to wither. Sorghum became a major source of cattle feed in the Southern Great Plains after seed companies introduced it in an improved, hybrid form in Texas and Oklahoma in the 1950s. Most varieties of wheat and barley are fairly drought tolerant; consequently these crops are grown in the drier, western plains. Corn, soybeans, cotton, and sugar beets demand a great deal of moisture. These crops are always irrigated when grown in the drier, western parts of the region but are grown frequently on the eastern Plains, where irrigation is not a necessity.

They selected the crops with which they had success elsewhere, but their previous farming experience was not always a reliable guide.

It seems as if they chose their planting times wisely and used hybrid crops to help combat the drought.

So how would I wright my answer?

Something along the lines of," they used drought resistant crops and carefully planned planting"

Is this a good answer? Most varieties of wheat and barley are fairly drought tolerant; consequently these crops are grown in the drier, western plains. Corn, soybeans, cotton, and sugar beets demand a great deal of moisture.

Umm, i'd mention one of the crops being sorgum as that was the hybrid they were using

But, don't copy directly from the source, they can check it for plagiarism. you need to put it in your own words.

What about this...yes or no? The most serious problems developed in southwestern Kansas, eastern Colorado, and the Oklahoma and Texas Panhandles, an area that became known as the Dust Bowl in the 1930s because the combination of drought, overcultivation, and excessive grazing had removed so much of the plant cover that soil surfaces became completely open to wind erosion. Attempts to make rain by cloud seeding were once seen as a means to combat drought, but today the more common approach is to use irrigation where possible.
