Craighead County--The lack of rain is catching up with area farmers. Soybean farmers seem to be among the hardest hit. They historically are some of the last to harvest their crops and rain is needed to “finish out” their crops. Soybeans not “finished out” can cost farmers; one farmer saying he could lose about 20 to 25 dollars an acre.
“I would like to see an inch or an inch and half of rain.”
