Some drier weather has helped Indiana farmers start catching up on this year's corn and soybean crops. The federal government's weekly crop report says 30 percent of the Indiana corn crop was planted as of Sunday, up from 8 percent the week before.
That is far short of the 92-percent level reached at the same time last year and the five-year average of 54 percent.
The crop report says soybean planting is also behind typical pace.
Six percent of the soybean crop's been planted, down from the average of 89 percent.
