Farmers Face Tough Decisions As Soggy Spring Continues

5/30/19 – 10:07 A.M.

The soggy spring has been a nightmare for area farmers. OSU extension educator Ed Lentz says farmers looking to plant corn have some tough decisions to make because of an approaching insurance deadline…


Lentz says if a farmer opts to take the insurance claim, they can’t plant corn this season. In that case, they might switch their fields to beans, but if too many people do that, it will drive the price of beans down even further.

Lentz says we faced a similar situation nearly a decade ago…


Lentz cautions that they caught many breaks during the back part of the growing season that year. It rained at ideal times and the first fall frost came 30 days later than normal.

State Representative Jon Cross Talks About House Bill 6

05/29/19 – 6:57 P.M.

State Representative Jon Cross joined us on WFIN to talk about House Bill 6. He explained that the bill is designed to help balance out energy production.

The bill will take money from electric bills and put it into a fund to support clean energy services like the Akron-based FirstEnergy.

Some have opposed the bill saying that it removes renewable energy mandates set in 2008. Cross disagrees saying that the bill will help provide the energy the state needs in the long term.

Cross added that it makes more sense to put money towards clean energy such as nuclear energy when renewable sources can cost both time and resources.
