(Whitewater Valley)--An agricultural newsletter says that crops in the Whitewater Valley are in the worst shape they’ve been in for a long time. The USDA now rates just 32% of our area’s corn as good. 27% is rated as poor. Everything else is just fair. It’s all due to a very wet spring. At one point this April and May, Richmond had measurable rainfall on 23 of 31 days.
