Mother Nature hurts corn crop again in Wisconsin
MADISON - Last year was brutal for farmers in Wisconsin. As we hit the Fourth of July, this year isn't looking a whole lot better.
"We've got a real mixed bag," said Casey Langan with the Wisconsin Farm Bureau.
Crops in southeast Wisconsin are actually doing pretty well. But other parts of the state are suffering through the opposite problem most of the state went through last year. It's too wet and cold!
"Primarily around Green Bay and the area between Eau Claire and La Crosse, farmers struggled to get their cops in at all," Langan said.
In those parts of the state, the crops have barely started growing. That means yields are likely to be down this year.
