Ideal weather conditions have area farmers enjoying a great growing season to this point, according to Jim Wautier of Church-Site Farms in Brussels. Recent hot temperatures and occasional rains have led to a corn crop that has tasseled out in most areas. Wautier says his corn fields are really doing well.
Wautier marvels that the corn silage is on target to mature and be harvested by early September considering the later-than-normal spring planting.
