The hits just keep coming for Hoosier farmers thanks to persistent rain and wet fields.

Only 8 percent of our state’s corn crop has been planted, at this point.

By this time last year, 82 percent of our corn had gone in the ground.

Farmers are nearly a month behind schedule but it’s not time to worry yet. Corn can still be planted into late May and even early June.
