TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Last week’s rainfall was a welcome event for farmers in the Wabash Valley.

Evan Burbrink with “BE N AG” Family Farms said the rain came at an important time for their corn and soybean crops.

Even though the Wabash Valley saw dry weather throughout most of June, Burbrink said their crops were still growing fairly well so far, but, he says they could use some more rain going forward.

“This rain was really needed. There’s a lot of water usage that goes on right now from the plants and we’ll definitely be needing another rain here in a week or two,” said Burbrink.

Burbrink added that July and August will be a critical time for rainfall.
