The dry beginning of last week helped farmers get in the fields and make significant progress.
USDA reporters say both corn and soybean plantings surpassed the five-year averages until rains slowed field activity late in the week. That same wet weather also hindered haying and some spraying activities.
As of Sunday, 81% of Indiana’s corn is planted with 58% of the corn emerged.
Seventy percent of the soybeans are planted with 45% of the crop emerged.
