Many farmers still waiting to plant crops

Another wet spring has area farmers delaying their planting plans for May. Similar to last spring when a major April snowstorm pushed back spring planting two to three weeks, many farms have not put corn or soybeans in the ground, according to Jim Wautier of Church Site Farms in Brussels.  He says some farmers have started planting but many are still playing the waiting game.

 

 

Wautier says the slow start of the planting season can be made up quickly with a good of stretch weather to help the crops grow.  Farmers say it takes most corn seeds over 100 days to mature, and soybeans take 60 to 70 days from planting to harvest.
