      Rain helpful or hurtful for farmers?

      All the heavy rains lately have been affecting everyone that lives in Southwest Georgia and especially the farmers.

      All the heavy rains lately have been affecting everyone that lives in Southwest Georgia and especially the farmers.

      FOX 31 spoke with the manager at Farmers Organic in Newton who deals with farmers and crops on a daily basis. He said the rain has definitely affected them, and not in a good way.

      He said they had a zucchini crop that was completely ruined in the heavy rains, and he knows other farmers suffered as well.

      Unfortunately, there's nothing they can do about it but hope that the rain stops soon.
