Farmers look to take advantage of dry weather

Do not be surprised if you are sharing the road with tractors and other implements of husbandry this weekend in Door and Kewaunee Counties. Farmers are finally finding their fields dry enough to prepare the land to harvest some crops while planting others. It comes on the heels of what has been one of the wettest springs on record. It has made life difficult for agronomists like Rio Creek Feed Mill’s Adam Barta, who has had to walk farmers through the spring planting process with some fields still under water until recently. Barta says there are consequences if corn and some forage crops do not get into the ground soon.

With crop insurance deadlines looming, Barta says farmers would rather get some plants in the ground then take the money and run.
