Despite a wet, soggy harvesting season, the tobacco crop is doing fairly well, according to area farmers.
“It’s a good crop, even a big crop, but it’s wet,” said Paul Hornback, state senator and co-chair of the state Agriculture Committee who also owns a farm in the Bagdad area.
Hornback said that wet conditions are making it difficult for farmers to dry and cure their tobacco.
“It’s been very trying,” he said. “There have been some challenges.”
