Local crops resisting drought

-A A +A

Southwest Virginia's produce could be highly sought-after, with much of the nation suffering under dry conditions.

By Christopher Brooke, Reporter

HILLSVILLE — People making jack-o-lanterns this fall may end up carving pumpkins from Southwestern Virginia, due to the drought disrupting crops over much of the United States, according to information from state agriculture officials.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture reports that nearly 1,300 counties, many of them in the grain-producing Midwest, have declared disasters. Meanwhile, a number of severe thunderstorms have caused their own brand of damage, but they also brought rain totals up for the Twin Counties.
