USA - Flooding impacts crops, causes delays in growth

Farmers say all of the rain the last few weeks has made it difficult for farmers to stay on schedule. They say muddy conditions and crop loss due to flooding mean there could be a delay for when certain produce is available.

Drew Alexander, a farmer from Broadway, says inches of standing water killed his spinach crop, and if the ground doesn’t dry out fast enough, it could also cause root crops, like potatoes, to start rotting.
