After a difficult year for the county's farmers in 2018 when the drought caused many people to receive significantly worse harvests, 2019 was a year of fine harvests over the law. And so far, the situation looks good for this year's growing season.

The corona crisis also affects agriculture. Grain prices have gone down so the hope for farmers is that it can change before it's time to sell this year's crop.
