Cold weather continues to slow germination of corn in the ground. For farmers who did get the corn planted, Torrington, Wyoming based Meyer Seeds co-owner Bret Meyer the cold temperatures are delaying emergence. “As long as it stays cool, we shouldn’t have too many crusting issues as it gets hot and windy.
