(GARDEN PLAIN, Kan)
Less than three weeks ago, farmers were struggling. Dry, cracked soil made the outlook for unplanted crops, and planted crops, pretty bleak.
"We're better off than we were two weeks ago because we've got the adequate moisture for now."
Wheat fields are beginning to turn color, and for farmer and State Representative Dan Kerschen, that's a relief.
"We're looking at maybe average. It won't be a tremendous crop but it's definitely better than what we had started out with."
All of our recent rain may have helped with the moisture level of the wheat but the Kansas wind has blown in a whole new problem.
