(SEDGWICK COUNTY, Kan.) — Kids may be stuck inside during spring break, but area farmers are loving the early spring rain.
After three days of rain, the soil is soaking up the moisture and helping their crops grow.
Sedgwick County has had about 2 inches of rain in the last 48 hours. Farmers say that's going to make a big difference when it comes to harvest. They're replacing blades on their equipment to get ready to cut the crops.
"Replacing worn parts and just getting stuff fixed up so it's ready to roll when the sun shines and we need to be in the field," said Kent Winters from his farm outside of Andover.
Since the rain fall is not harsh, they're not seeing a lot of run off which means they're not losing newly-planted seeds.
