This Season is Tough on Indiana Crops
Many farmers have struggled with plating this year due to the continuously wet spring we had. Indiana was behind almost every other state in the process of crop planting. More than 5.5 million acres of Indiana farmland were scheduled to be planted with corn this year. The state's farmers had only planted 31 percent of that as of June 2, the point in the year when farmers are typically packing up their planters for the season. As if the situation couldn’t get any worse, the soybean crop, already affected by a trade war, was starting to fall behind, too.
