A central Wisconsin farmer says field progress this spring has been slower than usual because of excess moisture in some fields.
John Eron farms west of Stevens Point, and says for him, tillage and planting began in the lower lands this year. “We’re noticing a lot of the sidehill seeps are pushing out a lot of water, which happens one out of ten years and apparently, this is the year so we’ve got more lowland that is getting worked right now than some of the higher fields that have some hillsides.”
Eron says planting is now going well for him and most of his neighbors.
