Wichita, Kansas (KSNW) — Over the past few days, the humidity that was highly needed throughout Kansas has fallen.
El Dorado’s peasant Gordon Stand says he was just in time.
“We were really dry. The wheat hurt. We needed to rain the wheat,” he said. “I think the first rain was about 1 inch and three-quarters. The second rain was already close to 3 inches, so here we have a total of about 5 inches,” says Stands. I am saying.
Farmers are grateful for every drop.
“If you are a rancher, a peasant, you surely because it fills all our ponds, streams are flowing, they are low, low, and there was really no water in any of the streams. I am grateful for that, “he explained.
The rain caused a slight flood on the stand farm.
“There is a lot of water in some areas. It takes a while to dry. The roads are muddy, but it’s not a big problem for us. It was really dry so there was a place to go to everything.” He said.
El Dorado was lucky with a few inches of rain, but the rest of Sunflower had only a few drops.
According to Stand, this year’s product prices are the highest I’ve ever seen, which is especially stressful. He says the harvest is successful in order to get back what they have invested in.
