Late planting unlikely

Without a little help from Mother Nature, Rio Creek Feed Mill agronomist Adam Barta believes some fields may be bare this winter. Many farmers were able to power through their harvest despite battling cold temperatures, wet fields, and moist crops.  Barta estimates only 50 percent of the soybean crop has been harvested locally, while farmers got much of their corn off the if they did not give up on it. As the timeline gets later, Barta fears many farmers will not have the ability to successfully plant cover crops this year.

Barta says the wet weather has allowed farmers to only get about 10 to 15 percent of their fields planted with a cover crop, which is also used forage and bedding for animals.
