Farmers need dry weather

After another rainy week in the Door Peninsula, farmers are running out of time to get their crop harvested. Rich Olson of Olson Family Farm says he is most worried about corn. Harvest should have happened already in a normal year. Olson concedes that a poor harvest could help boost prices and crop insurance would make the prudent farmer whole in time. However, Olson says that operations at his farm are dependent on having the corn in hand.


Olson needs two weeks of dry weather since the ground is fully saturated. That includes fields that have been tiled for drainage. The one saving grace could be that the planting season was late this spring meaning the harvest timetable is behind as well.
