Jackson county--After heavy rains in April and may flooded out many fields, farmers are just now being able to survey the damage. They say the news is mostly good and better than expected.
Randy Chlapecka, with the University of Arkansas Coop Extension Service in Newport, says he has surveyed several fields over the past week. Saying corn and rice fields were the most damaged crops. He adds most of the damaged fields have been or will be replanted, probably with soy beans. Soybeans are the number one crop of Jackson County .
