A southern Michigan farmer is surprised how well his crops have come through drought conditions.
Paul Pridgeon went six weeks without rain just after planting.
“If I have to experience a drought in Michigan though, June is probably the best time for me to do it,” he shares. “We were fortunate enough that we had good germination, enough to get plants established, and they really weathered it.”
The Branch County farmer tells Brownfield field conditions starting August are pretty good.
