Severe Droughts Cause Farmers to Pray for Rain



Farmers in Middle Georgia and across the state turned to the power of prayer on Thursday. They prayed for rain to help the State’s billion dollar agriculture business.

According to Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black, 1 in 8 people in the state work in an agriculture related field.

Pecan farmer Scott Craft says the dry soil has prevented him from harvesting. “It’s extremely dry. The water is not going very far. All we’re doing is surviving,” says Craft.
