Some Farmers Unsure About Crops Despite Rainfall

(NORTH CAROLINA NEWS NETWORK) — Recent rainfall has been a relief for local farmers.

However, they still expect the drought will result in crop loss.

Farmer Warren Hardy has corn and soybean fields in Lenoir County.

He says the combination of dryness and extreme heat for several weeks will cut his harvest in a way he hasn’t experienced since 1985.

Hardy told WITN News this week he wished he had been able to plant earlier.

Experts with the Farm Bureau say corn will likely be the most lost crop, followed by cotton and soybeans.
