Corn Planting Way Behind

(5/6/14) Almost a quarter of the Wisconsin corn crop is normally planted by now -- but thanks to our cold-and-wet spring, only two-percent of the corn was in the ground as of Sunday.  

Six-percent of the spring field tillage is done, up from just one-percent a week ago as tractors spent most of last week in the sheds again.  About 18-percent of the Wisconsin oat crop has been planted.  That's five-percent more than a week ago, but it's well below the norm of 59-percent by this date.  Thirty-seven percent of the state's farm fields have surplus moisture, up from 35-percent a week ago.  All of the state's crop reporters say we need sunny-and-warmer weather.  Oneida County still has frost in the ground.
