Some farmers are way behind on planting due to wet soil

Ames, Iowa – Farmers are struggling to get into the field due to the recent wet conditions. Angie Rieck-Hinz, a field agronomist with the Iowa State University Extension office, says farmers in far northern Iowa are getting frustrated with the continued wet weather and the muddy soil.

Even though we’ve had some dry days, the ground hasn’t been able to dry out in some areas before it rains again, compounding difficulties for farmers.

Rieck-Hinz had a nugget of advice for farmers, though they’re not going to like it.

Forecasters say the wet weather will give way to a few days of sun beginning Tuesday.
