BROWN COUNTY - A very wet spring has some Wisconsin farmers concerned.
Corn stalks are usually about a foot high this time of year, but in many places, they're only 2 to 8 inches high right now. Experts say some more dry, sunny days are needed to help the corn grow.
"It's coming along right now. We've had some nice, warm weather the last few weeks, so for those guys that got it planted -- there's some acres out there still not planted yet -- but for the guys that got it planted, it's starting to look pretty good."
Brown County farmers say when it comes to height, the corn appears to be about a week behind schedule.
