The constant rains this spring are leaving some Ohio farmers wondering whether they’ll be able to plant any crops this year. Just one-third of Ohio’s corn crop had been planted as of a week ago. In normal years, farmers in the state would have nearly all of their corn fields planted.
Soybean planting is also reported to being way behind because of the wet weather. Statistics from the U.S. Department of Agriculture show that only Indiana is farther off the pace than Ohio when it comes to the delays in planting.
The Ohio Farm Bureau Federation are reporting that farmers in the northwestern part of the state have been hit the hardest. The farm bureau says it’s the worst planting season since it started tracking planting progress in the 1970s.
