It’s been tough fall for farmers in Southern Wisconsin with rain hampering crops. Growers are having a hard time getting their crops in, according UW Ag agent David Fischer. Soybeans, being so close the ground, are most critical. Less than 50 percent are in and if farmers can’t finish before the snow starts falling, the “beans will probably be lost.”
Only about ten percent of the corn is in. Fischer says farmers are hoping for some sunny days so they don’t have to spend so much money drying corn once it’s been harvested.
