Storm takes toll on area crops

Posted: Updated:

Area crops also feeling the worst of the storm, and it's a wait and see game if some of them will recover.

As some corn stocks broke because of the wind, others just bent over. Even though the crop damage covered most of west central Ohio, Extension Agent Curtis Young says some fields could bounce back and have a good harvest.

Young says the wheat crop is about a week over due for being harvested, and the seeds are starting to loosen up and yesterday's wind did knock some of the seed to the ground. It's hard to say how the wheat yield will be effected, the longer it stays out in the field.

Some soybean fields could be effected by flooding with all the recent rains and since it is so late in growing season there will no chance to replant and could be total losses for area farmers.
