Farmers face steep losses after gusts down corn just ahead of harvest
TELL CITY - A months-long - and mostly successful - growing season for Perry County corn farmers was blown way, literally, Sept. 14 as powerful winds flattened maturing fields. Damage varied depending on location and maturity level of plants, with the fields closest to harvest sustaining some of the worst damage.
Many fields were virtually flattened and will be difficult to harvest, although some farmers planned to purchase special attachments that will help pick up some of the downed stalks.
