With all the rain we’ve been getting this year, it’s messing with Indiana farmers.
Persistent rainfall has put Indiana farmers well behind schedule in planting their crops.
The US Department of Agriculture says just three percent of this year’s expected corn crop was planted as of early May.
The five-year average is 35%.
The planting season also began slowly last year.
Soybeans are also struggling, but there’s more time to get those in the ground.
