Late Crops Not a Problem...Yet

When it comes to planting crops, Ohio farmers are behind schedule.  Both the corn and soybean crops are about a third of where they have been in the five-year average, but Joe Cornely with the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation isn't that worried 

About a quarter of the corn crop and 12 percent of soybeans are in the ground in Ohio - on average.  Ohio Farm Bureau Federation's Joe Cornely credits ag-technology for giving farmers a little more wiggle room these days.

Farmers have waited as late as June to get planting done and have still produced some good yields.

Conditions across the state vary with farmers in western Ohio having a bit better luck. 

Farmers are still ahead of last year's pace and things turned out to be decent then.
