Planting Season Off To Slow Start

Farmers across the Midwest are slow to plant corn this season and the reason is that fields are just too wet and it‘s just too cold.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, 3 percent of the corn crop is in the ground which is about half the amount of last year which was one of the wettest springs on record.

In Illinois, just 1 percent of this year's corn has been planted.

 The USDA says farmers in other key corn-producing states aren’t doing any better.
