Cold, Wet Spring Causes Planting to Fall Behind

By end of April, planting pace could be slowest ever

Planting 2

The crop progress report was out Tuesday, with planting falling further behind in nearly all crops, as the cold/wet spring still has not warmed or dried soils enough to allow planting in most areas.

According to Successful Farming, most all spring planted crops are falling further behind normal, and next week’s weather forecast isn’t much better.

It’s likely that by the end of April, the U.S. planting pace will be one of the slowest ever and with soils still saturated from a wet fall and winter and cool spring, it could be awhile before much gets done.
