Nebraska drivers and farmers are being reminded to be careful during harvest because large equipment and trucks will be entering and leaving fields.

Tim Scheer is chairman of the Nebraska Corn Board. He says farmers will be working long hours to harvest their crops, and that can contribute to errors.

But other drivers also need to be careful, especially in rural areas where traffic will be heavier than usual. And drivers should watch out for slow-moving agricultural equipment.

Tall crops in the fields may also make it hard to see traffic at some intersections.
