What A Difference!

 

 

Grayden Rufenacht, 5, rural Archbold, illustrates how much corn has grown based on when it was planted. Above: In this photo taken Thursday, June 27, Grayden kneels in one of his family’s fields that was planted on June 12. Below: He stands in corn that was planted on May 10. Frequent spring rains kept most farmers out of their fields during the usual corn planting dates and delayed soybean planting. Many are looking at their crop insurance option and waiting to see if Sonny Perdue, Secretary of Agriculture, declares Ohio a disaster area for the planting season.– photos by David Pugh
