Despite Rain, Farmers See Losses

Despite having near record rains this year, farmers say crops are showing signs of stress typically seen during droughts. "This has been a bizarre season," said Joe Boggs, with Ohio State University's Hamilton County Extension office. "We had a lot of wetness in spring and then mid-season the faucet shut off and then we had extreme hot temperatures with wind, which is like a hairdryer."
