Farm fields need snow cover

With no appreciable snowfall expected in the next week, Door and Kewaunee County farmers are becoming more concerned about enough field protection for future crops.  Rich Olson of Olson Family Farm in southern Door County says the lack of snow cover is one issue.  He says the high amounts of precipitation last year are still impacting the dormant fields right now.

 

 

Olson adds that he is really concerned about the alfalfa roots that may be in standing water.

 

 

One piece of good news Olson shared was that most farmers were able to get their soybean crops off despite a later-than-normal harvest last fall.
