Central Illinois farmer Stan Born says some recent rains were much needed.
“We were blessed with about four inches of rain over three days,” he said.
Born tells Brownfield he’s optimistic about the crop. “Our beans are looking really good. Corn looks pretty good, except for on the lighter ground. We’ve got a fair amount of the season to go – it won’t be a record – but we should be able to raise a good crop.”
He says they faced planting delays this spring.
