Farmers Anxious To Start Field Work

The cool, wet Spring has prevented area farmers from doing next to nothing in the fields. It’s not clear when field work will begin, but certified crop advisor Mike Wilson of Wabash Valley Service Company says things won’t begin to get critical for a few more weeks. Wilson said May 10th has historically been the cut off date as to when yields are affected for crops not yet planted. But these days, Wilson said genetics have pushed back that May 10th deadline…

Last year, Wilson said a lot of corn wasn’t planted until late May and early June and that still resulted in bumper crops.
