Illinois farmer seeing crop loss from major rainfall

Multiple rainstorms have a southern Illinois farmer tallying up crop losses.

“In the last three weeks we’ve had around 18 inches of rain that came in 6 different events.”

Josh Harris who farms near Clay City Illinois tells Brownfield the rain has caused severe flooding in their bottom ground with an estimated 20-25% crop loss so far.

On the higher ground, early planted beans look good, but later planted beans are showing signs of stress.
