"Knee high by the Fourth of July" is the old saying for corn, and that's about where it is in southern Wisconsin right now.
However, UW Ag Agent David Fischer says the crop is way behind schedule. Flooding combined with a cold, wet spring has resulted in a struggle for many farmers to get the crop growing. Fischer says that, at the same point last year, the corn crop was shoulder high.
There's still hope for the season though. Fischer says there's plenty of time for the crop to catch up to where it needs to be, if the weather cooperates.
