The effects of the partial government shutdown is trickling down to farmers in Northeast Florida.
Local farmer Danny Johns owns Blue Sky farms and says he counting on the USDA to engineer an irrigation system that's necessary for him to grow his crops.
"Big project and we're trying to get in before the crop season this year."
But he says its being delayed while the government shutdown continues.
"It's affecting our timing on that."
He tells WOKV news he hopes the irrigation system will be completed before crop season begins.
