Weather is a part of agriculture farmers have no control over. This time of year, it can be one of their worst fears.

Earlier this week hail damaged crops across Reno County. Normally farmers would be harvesting wheat fields right now, but hailstorms destroyed their crop before farmers could get to it.

They estimate weather destroyed 80,000 acres of crops, knocking this year’s yield down to just one third of what it could be.
