With still a couple days left in the month, April will go down as one of the wetter ones for area farmers in recent years. According to envirorweather.com, Door and Kewaunee Counties have already received nearly four inches of rainfall this month. Jim Wautier, owner of Church Site Farms In Brussels and a member of the DoorCountyDailyNews.com Ag Advisory Board says the fields remain too wet and cool to start planting corn and soybeans.
Wautier says normally the last week of April is when area farmers start planting corn while early May is the target for soybeans. According to Wisconline.com, Door County averages 2.8 inches of rain for the month of April.
