With below average temperatures and additional snowfall this April, area farmers are looking at a later than normal spring planting of crops. Jim Wautier of Church-Site Farms in Brussels says although the spring has been unseasonably snowy and cold, it could be worse for his upcoming crop.
Wautier projects that farmers would be about a week behind in getting their corn planted this spring. Usually, farmers hope to have their corn planted by the end of April with soybeans in early May, according to Wautier.
