“If I took all the hail storms I’ve seen in my life and put them into one storm, that’s what we had.”

The night of Monday, July 14 was a tough one at the college’s Peninsular Ag Research Station near Sturgeon Bay.

“We had 4–6 inches of hail and over three inches of rain last night,” superintendnet Matt Stasiak said in an email the next morning. “All crops in a 1.5 x 2-mile swath are a complete loss.”

“If I took all the hail storms I’ve seen in my life and put them into one storm, that’s what we had,” Stasiak told the Wisconsin State Journal on Tuesday. With the exception of some potato plants in greenhouses, “everything at the research station is a loss,” he says.
