NB farmers worry about dry weather

A dry spring has led to a dry summer so far this year in New Brunswick.

July is nearly over and less than half of the normal amount of rain has fallen in Greater Moncton.

Meteorologists are not calling it a drought yet but farmers are worried.

A combination of heat and a lack of rain is causing everything from potatoes to grain crops to struggle this summer.
