Dry weather, dusty fields growing concern in Maine

Potato farmers are worried about their crops as the northern part of the state experiences one of the driest summers on record, according to a report by Associated Press journalist David Sharp.

In Aroostook County, which is experiencing a severe drought, there has been no heavy rain since before Memorial Day, potentially reducing the yield, said Don Flannery, executive director of the Maine Potato Board.

Instead, there have been scattered showers that have helped some farmers but have left others high and dry.
