Summer Drought: It’s a Disaster for both Farmers and Consumers

Record #:
North Carolina farmers have been severely damaged by the summer drought, with estimated losses in the state at more than $300 million. This also impacts consumers because the prices of products that use corn, soybeans and wheat are going to be higher in the months ahead. This has prompted calls by North Carolina congressmen for federal aid to ease the burden.
