Weather Warms Up, Nebraska Farmers Plant Corn
Lincoln, NE - It's actually starting to feel like spring and Nebraska farmers are starting to plant corn. But they're behind schedule and the ground is still too dry, according to the U.S. Agriculture Department.
Farmers have now planted about 3 percent of the state's corn crop, but that's way behind what it should be at this time of year.
The USDA estimates that only about 56 percent of the topsoil and 11 percent of the subsoil has enough moisture.
