Fieldwork rain delayed for corn leader


A West Michigan farmer is optimistic this week’s warm-up will help dry up fields.

Randy Poll farms 3,000 acres of corn, soybeans, and wheat, and raises hogs with his family in Hamiton.

“We’re in a slight rain delay, we’ve had a lot of rain here lately,” he says.

In the meantime, Poll tells Brownfield his family is focusing on equipment maintenance and is grateful for the added subsoil moisture.
