TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Local farmers have said that rain throughout the month of April has slowed the start of planting season.

Brad Burbrink with Be-N-Ag farms said that fields have been too wet to get any planting done. He said that they have only been able to plant for one day in April.

Normally, planting season begins in early April for most farmers.

Now, most planting must be done in a short time window this month. Burbrink said that this will makes this tough and could affect the overall yield.

“We haven’t really been in the fields so it’s just going to compact our time frame of when we can get this crop planted,” Burbrink stated.
