Mother Nature has been doing its best to delay farmers with their planting. Rain and cool temperatures in the early parts of spring made getting out to the fields a little more difficult.

According to Bloomberg, spring wheat prices in the U.S. are rising due to a dry spell before this week’s storms pushed crops into the worst shape they have been at this point of the year in three decades.
