(LaCrosse, IN) - It’s a mixed bag for local farmers right now. Some have received too much rain.
Others could use some more. Matt Shafer grows corn and soybeans in the LaCrosse area.
For him, Shafer says things were a bit wet early on but lately, things became dry enough for him to turn on his irrigation system so the rain yesterday was welcomed.
Shafer says other local farms, though, have received a lot more rain than he has recently with some areas receiving two inches or more yesterday and similar amounts in previous days.
Shafer says he was able to finish his planting 50 days before last year when the spring was historically wet.
