Area farmers are eagerly preparing for the upcoming planting season. Recent warmer and drier weather has improved field conditions considerably, but Rich Olson of Olson Family Farm in Southern Door and a member of the DoorCountyDailyNew.com Ag Advisory Board says farmers are still about a month away from planting crops.
Olson says in the meantime, farmers are busy making mechanical repairs and maintenance of farm equipment. Soybeans and Corn crops will be planted any time between late April and early May, according to Olson.
