Wisconsin corn planting is off to its slowest start since 2014. The state Ag Statistics Service says five-percent of this year’s crop was in the ground as of Sunday, ten days behind last year and six days behind the average for the past five years. The main reason is that wet and cold weather put farmers behind on their spring field work. Spring tillage is only 21-percent finished statewide, eleven days behind last spring and eight days behind the five year average. Forty-eight percent of Wisconsin farm fields have surplus moisture, and observers say there was at least some planting of corn, oats, and potatoes in well drained areas early last week before more rains came.
