Weeks of consistently wet weather are causing problems for Indiana farmers, who are now about three weeks behind schedule planting corn.
And that delay could have a financial impact on the rest of their year.
Vanderburgh County farmer Randy Kron has been itching to get out in his fields for a couple of weeks. But frequent rain means the ground’s been too wet to plant.
“Today is the first day that we’re doing any planting, so that’s kind of like a little bit of therapy to be in the tractor seat and be doing something finally,” Kron says.
