Rain Has Not Affected Crop In Indiana

The Wabash Valley has seen a lot of rain over the past few months but despite the wet spring experts say the crops are doing just fine.

A meeting was held Monday with folks from the Purdue Extension office and the Wabash Valley Community Foundation.

Experts say even with the above average rainfall this spring Indiana still has 79% of its corn crop and  74% of its soy bean crop with above average yields in both categories, particularly in corn.

It was a rough year for farmers in 2012 but you can expect a better season this year.  A better season means cheaper prices at the grocery store.
