One area farmer is hoping there’s potential for a good crop.

Daryl Terpstra is with the Perth County Federation of Agriculture and he says they had a pretty good start to the spring other than it being cold.

He says things are quite dry right now but he’s hoping the rain we have received, with more in the forecast, will be enough to take care of crops including corn which is in the ground and growing.

Terpstra says farmers are happy to see the province start reopening as it will make it easier to pick up parts they need to do the job.

“I believe we’re not in bad shape, we’re all business owners and we understand that we need to stock the things that we need and it helps a little bit.”

He adds the pandemic hasn’t had much of an impact on farming as agriculture is recognized as an essential service.
