The dry weather has affected some growers who sell fruits and vegetables to the public.
Graf Growers on Akron's White Pond Drive is ready for the dry conditions. They use a complex irrigation system with water from a well to keep the corn and tomatoes growing.
But Scott Graf says that even in wetter years, there are extra costs involved.
"I'm sure the electric bill is high, because we're pumping (water) with electric, so I'm sure it's high," Graf tells AkronNewsNow.com. "But we were pumping last year, pumping water off the field, so I'm not sure it's a big difference."
Graf describes the irrigation process, which uses water from a nearby well.
"Peppers and tomatoes, they are on a trickle irrigation, so it's a low pressure under plastic, so it's just a real slow soaking of the plants", Graf explains. "And then with the corn, we use our irrigators with pipe, or the traveling machines."
Graf says generally, the prices of things like the corn and tomatoes he sells don't change much, because those extra costs average out over time.
