Mud covers roads in southern Door County and Kewaunee County, the consequence of heavy farm equipment rolling through wet soil. Off the pavement, the ruts left behind will affect farming in the area for at least a decade according to Kewaunee County Agriculture Agent Aerica Bjurstrom.
Fields will struggle to filter water properly and they become more likely to flood in low lying spots. Bjurstrom says that it may affect what crops can be planted in the area. She believes alfalfa could become more common as farmers adjust.
