FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) – Its tractor time again at the Coliseum as the annual Farm Show plowed its way into the Summit City.

The show gives area farmers a chance to sample and test new equipment and technology on the market.

INC caught up with a Van Wert farmer who's still feeling the effects of a wet season.

He says he's optimistic he won't be picking corn and soy this time next year.

Farmer, Brad Doner says, “You never know what the weather is going to do so I mean it's just hard to tell. We are just hoping for a big turn around this year.”

The Farm Show runs through Thursday night.
