New Report Says That Illinois Farmers Are Behind Schedule

The recent warm-up has helped farmers some, however all of the occasional showers continue to keep many out of the fields. 

The US Department of Agriculture released a report stating that nationally just over 3% of the country’s corn crop had been planted.

In Illinois that number falls to just 1%, a tenth of our normal average. 

Illinois Farm Bureau spokesman John Hawkins says there’s really no need to be concerned though. 

Even with last year’s agonizingly slow start, farmers still brought in a record 13.9 bushels of corn.
