How Rain Has Affected Farming in West Virginia

Posted:

GRANDVIEW (WVVA)- According to meteorologists, West Virginia had almost 60 percent more rainfall than usual this summer.

For farmers this is not a good thing.

Some say the ideal weather is rain shortly after you plan your crops then again two or three weeks later.

Too much rain and not enough rain are both damaging.

The rain has caused farmers to have significantly less hay and rotting vegetables.

Corn and potatoes are doing well.

 Local farmers say this summer has been a disaster for small gardens.
