Region 8 farmers are still feeling the sting from nearly a month of heavy rainfall in the region. While most flooding is minor, some farmers are looking at the very real possibility of having to re-plant crops in some areas.
In Grubbs, Kenny Clark may be forced to plant again. He says he is hoping the second planting of corn in his fields will be strong enough to stand the wet conditions. Adding two inches of badly timed rain could easily cost him $50,000. Down stream and through “the drift,” Tony Davis says people North of Grubbs are not the only ones feeling the pain. He says every hard rain sees 30-40 percent of his land flooded. Adding it looks like it will be several weeks before he will be able to really work the fields.
