Almost "Do Or Die" Time for Farmers

But despite the hand dealt by Mother Nature, some cash crop farmers who grow corn and soybean say they're expecting a banner year. Ross Bishop is one of those people. He's just about amazed how well his crop is doing. In fact, he expects to produce more than 30 thousand bushels.
Not all though can say the same thing, like pumpkin growers. Robert Hartwig with Cedarburg Creek Farm tells us his product has suffered due to a lack of hot, dry weather. He even says he could lose ten thousand pumpkins.
Through harvest season, farmers say they don't want any extreme weather, like heavy rain or thick frost, to affect the harvest.
