Harrisburg, AR - This picture is what the grader operators have to put up with. A flooded road from the fields. And you want to complain about how bad they are. They can only do so much

They wouldn't have to put up with this,if,the county would keep the ditches cleaned out.It is not the farmer's responsibility to clean out county ditches.
You think it's bad to go down a road like this on a ROAD GRADER,huh? Well,try driving through crap like this on a daily basis!
WHere in the H ELSE is water from a flooded field going to go? where all water goes,into ditches.And,if there aren't any cleaned out ditches and adequate drainage provided for,well,what the heck-- maybe you "get the picture."

maybe you need to talk to farmers, my husband is a grader operator and has been for years, and on a daily basis he does travel these road and he also sees the ditches being plowed over by farmers. So when they clean out the ditches they fill them again so they can get a few extra feet on their fields.

I don't need to talk to them.We are farmers.Granted,that probably does happen.There are some that don't have any need for or live on the roads that those ditches serve.There is a field on Pleasant Grove that has NO ditch to begin with,and the whole field is on a big slope of a hill.I think that the county should make this guy farming this parcel cut a ditch along his field instead of running beans/wheat right on to the road itself.Every time it rains,the water from this field stands in a big pool out on the road because: no ditch.
But the county cleaned out a big ditch along the road on Senteney,and no one has ever plowed it over,it was there to begin with for years.Some farmers are careless,and some are not.Don't lump them all together as "farmers" and "They" do this or that.They're not all bad,just as: everyone that works for Poinsett county road dept.isnt like King Doyle,thank Goodness!

I agree with everything you said, if all the ditches were that deep they couldnt be disked full. we have 1500 miles of gravel road in poinsett county and they have one trac hoe. Do you see the delimia. They can only do some much at one time. And I am not trying to link all farmers together, but there is a big problem with the farmers on the flat lands, and that is where this picture was took, and the operators get the blame for it. Ya there is some things the operators do that they do get the blame for but in the same aspect there are some things that they dont do and still get the blame.

I know some of the farmers are doing it,I've seen their fields alonside the ditches.But county ought to personally ( I mean DOYLE) ought to go to them and tell them to stop or they will have to clean it out themselves.Surely they can't just fill up a ditch on their side that is part of county easement also.Can't he do anything?
