Different heights of corn in this field just inside Duplin County is indicative of the problems the field has experienced with rain over the past month. A the end of April, the field received 5 inches of rain. It was replanted in the spots that drowned.This field was trenched to allow it to drain in the event of another heavy rain storm. It received 3 inches of rain last week. The field is a good example of how farmers don’t give up; instead they keep trying to make a crop. They are resilient.
