With spring temperatures finally rising above normal the past two weeks, area farmers have recently had the opportunity to get into their fields to start planting corn. Rich Olson of Olson Family Farm and the DoorCountyDailyNews.com Ag Advisory Board says he is excited to get into the fields as soil temperatures rise.
Olson says the later than normal spring set area farmers about two weeks behind planting schedule at this point. According to wisconline.com, Northeastern Wisconsin’s Crop Progress shows that only nine percent of corn and none of the soybeans crop acreage have been planted so far this spring.
