Snow and Rain Interrupt Spring Planting

Farmers were just getting planting ramped up and then snow and wet weather hit the northern part of the state. Iowa State University Extension field agronomist Angie Rieck-Hinz covers north-central Iowa, says it may be tough to wait — but that’s exactly what farmers will have to do now with wet conditions.

She says there shouldn’t be any concerns yet about getting corn planted.

Planting is slightly ahead of last year at this time.
