Now is typically the time of year area farmers are close to planting the majority of their crops. Rich Olson of Olson Family Farm and a member of the DoorCountyDailyNews.com Ag Advisory Board says the fields are still several weeks away from getting the crops planted.
Olson says farmers like to wait until the ground temperature reaches 50 degrees before planting soybeans and corn. He adds that the wet soil will take a lot longer to warm up than if it was dry soil.
