Rain May Keep Food Prices Stable


Huron Federation of Agriculture says most corn fields are close to normal.



Farmers across our area are breathing a sigh of relief now that we've received the most rain we've seen in many weeks.

A dry summer following a dry spring and winter has many people concerned about a possible spike in food costs at the grocery store.

Huron County Federation of Agriculture President Marinus Bakker says much of the rain we've received has been hit and miss.

Bakker observes that most corn fields are seeing close to normal growth but with some brown spots in places and some stunted plants.

He believes the rain we received this week will help alleviate the situation for many producers.


The Christian Farmers Association is holding a summer barbeque this weekend.

The Grey Bruce chapter of the CFA is holding its annual event on Sunday.

It begins at 12:30 PM at the farm of Ian and Ruth McCombie on the first concession of Elderslie Township south of Paisley.
