An exceptionally wet summer has local farmer Dick Works ?cautiously? optimistic about potential harvests this fall. Farmers are not ready to turn the page on 2019, despite an array of obstacles.
Low-flying crop dusters have been a common sight in Allen County in recent days. The cause for concern is worms.
?There has been an outbreak of worms in the last three or four days. We noticed some in our soybeans,? Works said Thursday afternoon. ?Planes are lined up all week. We should have some at our place either today, or possibly Friday. But there is a chance of rain for Friday, so hopefully they hit ours today.?
