Wet Spring, Bogged Down Prices Makes Planting Tough For Ohio Farmers

May 20, 2019 08:57 AM

This marks another week along our I-80 Planting Tour without seeing any planting in the field. USDA says corn and soybean plantings are behind by double-digits and Ohio as a state behind double-digits in both too.

AgDay national reporter Betsy Jibben has the story from Swanton, Ohio from farmers who even say their concerns are far more than weather-based. She talks with John Myers, Jeremy Myers and Justin Myers who farm in the area.

  Behind by double digits. LOL. That sounds alot better than reality. To most that would imkply bnehind something near 10% for starters. That means south of I 70 we are at 90% behind normal pace. Someone is minimizing the planting situation. Who would benefit from that? Hmmm...it isn't the grower.
