Farmers salvaging soybean crop despite wet fields

By Paul Schmitt    

The abundance of rain this fall has challenged local farmers in getting their crops off in a timely manner in October.  According to Enviroweather.com, areas in Door and Kewanee counties have received up to nearly six inches of rain in October already.  Jim Wautier of Church-Site Farm in Brussels and a member of the DoorCountyDailyNews.com Ag Advisory Board, says the soybean harvest was hit and miss this fall.



 

Wautier says the early heat this summer and the recent heavier rains made for an unusual season for farmers.   The average rainfall in Door County for the entire month of October is only 2.66 inches of rain, according to wisconline.com.
