Farmers dealing with moisture in fields

As below normal temperatures continue in the area and are forecast for the next week, local farmers are still looking to get into their fields to get the corn off.  Rich Olson of Olson Family Farm in southern Door County says there is still a lot of standing corn in the area.


Olson says the challenge is that the moisture has no way of drying out with the current conditions.



Many fields have standing water and the problem with the tall patches of corn is that it takes a long time for the frost to form.  Olson adds that means the cover on the field and the recent light snow is actually protecting the 50-degree ground from freezing.
