Dry weather puts farmers ahead

The Associated Press

        LIMA, Ohio — A lack of spring rain has helped farmers get their planting done ahead of schedule.

        “The lack of rain has really moved the planting forward,” said Glen Arnold, agriculture extension agent for Putnam County's Ohio State University Extension Office. “They were able to get out and plant rather than waiting for ... the fields to dry.”

        The National Weather Service said northwest Ohio received 3 fewer inches than normal so far this year, including more than a half-inch below normal in May.
