Create The Base For The Wet Mud Texture

Start a new document anysize you want (im using 500x200) and fill the background with black. Press "D" to reset your foreground and background colors to black and white
Now go to Filter » Render » Difference Clouds. Press CTRL+F 3 times to reapply.

How To Create The Cracked Mud Texture

Go to Filter » Stylize » Wind. and use Method: Wind. Direction: From the Right. This will add some streaks from right to left. We will use these streaks to build up the cracks in the mud texture.

Then Filter » Stylize » Wind. Method: Wind. Direction: From the Right
