Arkansas farmer says crop conditions and yields likely will vary

From too much rain to not enough, weather has been a challenge for many farmers in parts of the Delta this year. Ryan Johnson, who farms in southeast Arkansas, says after a hot and dry spell this summer they’ve had six inches of rain this week.“I don’t know that it’s a real positive effect,” he says.  “We’re at the point where we’re harvesting corn.  Cotton, soybean, and rice harvest is close.  It’s not the time of year you want a bunch of rain.”

He tells Brownfield corn harvest is underway in his area, and his expectations for yields?
