Farmers’ fingers crossed for late frost

Crops in the Prince Edward County have suffered quite a bit due to mass amounts of wet weather now coupled with a recent dry snap.

Many local farmers like Lloyd Crowe the Grain Director for the Prince Edward Lennox & Addington District, are waiting to see what kind of yield will develop heading into the fall season.

Lloyd who is co-owner of Picton’s Reynolds Bros Farms with his uncle Larry explained the corn and soy bean crops have really perked up thanks to recent rainfall.

Lloyd said he and many farmers are hoping for an above average yield adding they need one more month without an early frost to try and achieve that.
