The North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service says it’s great weather right now for farmers planting crops. Even though rainfall amounts are below average for this time of year, Beaufort County Agricultural Extension agent Rod Gurganus says that's not a bad thing. He says the critical time is June and July when crops like corn, soybeans, and tobacco, need the extra water to increase yield. Agriculture officials say we'll just have to wait and see how things turn out this summer.
