Rain Helping with Crops in Central Illinois

Local News

The Rain coming through Central Illinois is helping local farmers.

A dry winter was cause for concern among corn and soybean growers.

But a spokesperson from the Peoria County Farm Bureau says crops should be fine.

“The soil moisture is low but it seems like a lot of the tile lines are still running, which is a good thing,” says Patrick Kirchhofer, “But right now conditions look pretty good for farmers.”

Farmers will be keeping a close eye on the weather as they get ready to plant in mid-April.
