An unusually dry, hot June is hurting crops across the Midwest, including Michigan.
Everything from beans to sugar beets to wheat is suffering, says Kate Krepps of the Michigan Farm Bureau.
"It's been a strange year," says Krepps. "We had such a wet beginning, so it was really challenging for folks to get crops in the field in a lot of different areas, particularly in southern Michigan. And then they got them in the field, and we haven't had much rain since then."
The situation could reduce yields and profits for the roughly 75,000 people who farm in the state.
