Plymouth County farmers haven't just dealt with the hail. There's also the heavy rains that have fallen throughout Siouxland.
So far, they've received 12 inches, this month. Compare that to just three inches in all of April and May.
But, they're set-up better than most by their hilly landscape.
The rolling hills and terraces slow down the rain. The absence of flat land means there's less ponding on fields.
However, they are dealing with some erosion.
“The terraces aren't able to hold it all. So, it ends up cutting through the soil as it reaches its lowest point. By and large, our crop is in very good condition, but we do have a lot of ravines cut into the soft soil,” said Chris Pedersen, the General Manager of Farmer's Co-op of Kingsley.
Though they're not as impacted by heavy rain events, when there's a drought, Pederson says the county really suffers.
