Area Farmers are still patiently waiting to get in their fields and plant the majority of their crops. Rich Olson of Olson Family Farm and a member of the DoorCountyDailyNews.com Ag Advisory Board says the fields still remain too wet for planting.
Olson says the corn and soybean crops will be about two to three weeks behind schedule at this point. According to wisconline.com, Northeastern Wisconsin’s Crop Progress shows that only 62 percent of corn and just 35 percent of soybeans crop acreage has been planted.
