Farmers Assess Crops Following Hurricane Dorian

(NORTH CAROLINA NEWS NETWORK) — North Carolina may have dodged a bullet with Hurricane Dorian, according to one initial assessment.

While damage is still being assessed, Don Nicholson, State Agriculture Department Regional Agronomist told it’s better than a year ago.

According to Nicholson, tobacco may have suffered the worst due to Dorian.

Nicholson says some other crops — such as soybeans and peanuts may have actually benefitted from the rain.
