PLANTING DELAYED-OHIO
Cold, wet spring weather delays planting for Ohio farmers, but they're not worried yet

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, May 9, 2014 10:04 AM EDT
COLUMBUS, Ohio


A cold, wet spring has delayed planting for Ohio farmers, but they're not worried yet.

The same thing happened last year, and it turned out to be a great season for crops.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that through last Sunday only 8 percent of the corn had been planted in Ohio, down from the five-year average of 25 percent at that point, according to the National Agricultural Statistics Service.

Only 3 percent of soybeans had been planted, below the five-year average of 12 percent.

Joe Cornely, spokesman for the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation, says "farmers are anxious, but they are far from panicking."

He said the rule of thumb is that farmers like to have corn planted by mid-May, followed quickly by beans.
