first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Throughout the 2015 growing season, we have heard about the challenges farmers are dealing with when it comes to disease and pest pressures, the unforgiving onslaught of thunderstorm after thunderstorm and what seems to be endless amounts of rain flooding out would-be flourishing corn and bean fields across Ohio.The weekly crop progress reports have pegged the northwest part of Ohio as the spot that was getting the brunt of the punishing weather and I have heard from farmers in that area about how bad things were. But, it wasn’t until a trip to that part of the state on July 21st that I truly understood the breadth of the unfortunate situation.I considered this a warmup to what is yet to come for my trips on the Ohio and Pro Farmer Crop Tours. Here are just some of the pictures that were collected during our recent drive through Logan, Auglaize, Allen and Putnam counties. A corn field with a temporary pond on St Rt 198 just north of Wapak in Auglaize County. A charcoal colored wheat field half harvested in Allen County. A small patch of soybeans trying to make a late run through some corn stalks from a year ago in Allen County. Water logged soybeans in Allen County. An Allen County corn field that show major signs of too much rain. A struggling corn field west of Elgin, Ohio. Middle Point, Ohio is where I found this field. A soybean field in Wetzel, Ohio has a long way to go. This Grover Hill, Ohio corn field was one of the worst of the day. Had to get up close to see this field of soybeans in Grover Hill, Ohio.last_img read more
