Weather raining on parade for farmers

By Tim Kowols       

The United States Department of Agriculture expects it to be a banner year for corn and soybean croppers this year, but farmers in Door and Kewaunee counties will have to wait to experience it themselves. Several weeks of rain has left fields too wet to work in, leaving crops ripe for harvesting sit. Rio Creek Feed Mill owner Jerry Barta says while soybeans near the ground have rising waters to worry about, the fall winds could play an even a bigger factor for the unharvested corn.



Barta encourages farmers to get out into their fields as soon as possible and not wait for a more natural drying of their crops to prevent possible harvest loss.
