Farmers in portions of the eastern Corn Belt are getting rain. Freemont, Ohio-based Sunrise Cooperative Vice President of Grain Craig Haugaard says it looks like 2019. “From a planting progress standpoint, our trade area is around five to 10 percent planted. We need a good window to get the rest of the crop into the ground. We’re hopeful for the weather in the second week of May.” While there is concern about planting delays, farmers are sticking with their original plans. “If planting drags out, farmers could switch things up, but we’re hoping for good progress.”
