Farmers hold drought roundtable

MARSHALL CO., Ind. -- Even though we have had a good amount of rain this week, it's not enough for a comeback story.

The 2012 drought has devastated local farmers.

They met with experts to find out what they can do to ease the financial burden.

They learned how to maximize what's left and united together to figure out how to survive.

"These guys are farmers. And it's their livelihood. And when their crop fails, it's almost like when they've failed. That's the thing, is keeping our farmers strong.  So, that they can move into the future and plant next year's crop," said Gabe Ayers of the Agriculture Business Council of Indiana.

The recent rain has given them a little hope that there will be enough nutrients left for next season.
