Mother Nature Causes Trouble in the Fields
By: Jason Lindsey
First it was the input cost, then a killer frost, and now the rain. Bottom line, Heartland farmers are having a tough year.
Stoddard County Farmer Robert Aslin says Mother Nature is causing some big trouble! Aslin tells Heartland News, "As the old saying goes it's either too much or not enough." April's wicked frost cut Aslin's wheat crop in half.
Basically, instead farmers maximizing their profit this year they're going to be minimizing their losses. In the meantime, local farmers will hope for the best. Aslin says, "It depends on what June, July, and August brings us."
