Drought’s impact on local crops not severe
According to the Farm Service Agency, Jasper County has been in a drought since July 24, 2012, which led many people to believe this year’s crop harvest numbers were going to be down significantly.
Many pundits, including Jasper County’s FSA County Executive Director Katie Kramer, were pleased by the results.
“The (soy)beans turned out really well, considering the drought” Kramer said. “Corn was down a little bit, but I think everybody was pleasantly surprised. It didn’t seem to impact them as much.”
