Looking ahead from down on the farm

Keith Roysdon, Star Press City/County Issues reporter

For farmers like Lon Wright, it's best to keep a weather eye open.

But the only turbulence Hoosier farmers face isn't in the sky above.

"It's just so much more volatile than it used to be," Wright said in regard to Indiana agriculture. "Corn prices used to change 30 cents at max, now they can go up or down three dollars. You watch the market and try to cover your rear and use any tool that's out there."

Wright and his family -- five generations so far -- make up All Wright Farms of southern Delaware County.
