Kewaunee County UW-Extension Agriculture Educator Aerica Bjurstrom says farmers do not need to panic quite yet when it comes to their fall harvest and planting. Heavy rain this week is adding to the stress farmers have at this time of the year making sure they get their fieldwork completed before the first frost. Bjurstrom remains positive despite the weather, pointing out farmers still have a few weeks before they usually go out to harvest corn for silage. Worst case scenario, Bjurstrom says there are things farmers can do just in case this fall’s harvest comes up short.
Farmers could get a little help from Mother Nature after the weekend with sunshine and warm temperatures coming to the area next week according to the National Weather Service.
