BOWLING GREEN, Ky. -- Many South Central Kentucky farmers are continuing to race the clock. High temperatures, with little rain, are impacting the quality of crops throughout our region. Farmer, Tim Westbrook, says although the sun contributes to the flavor of sweet corn and other vegetables, without the rain, there is little the farmers can do.
"The next two weeks are really critical for corn production. We are trying to put soy beans behind wheat. The ground is so hard and dry right now that we're having problems getting the equipment in the ground."
He also said farmers will likely hold off on planting beans until it does rain, but he will continue threshing wheat and waiting for the rain to come.
