Indiana farmer hoping for rain after

A west central Indiana farmer says his crops could use some rain after wrapping up planting.

Kevin Cox says a wet and cool start turned into a warm and dry finish to the season.  

“That’s probably the biggest need we have right now to get this crop up and going,” he says.

He tells Brownfield the 10-day forecast isn’t calling for rain.

“You get into these kinds of conditions and humidity starts to climb so you might have some pop-up storms, but those don’t typically give you that wide-spread rainfall,” he says. “…I would really like to see some rain now that we got everything in the ground. We got the first round of hay cut and put up and didn’t get it rained on so that was good and now we’re moving forward.”

Cox raises soybeans and corn in Brazil, Indiana.
