Hope's Release March 8

Wet weather delaying planting
Thursday, June 27, 2013 8:29 AM

The wetter than normal weather this spring has made it impossible for a number of farmers to finish planting. Farmers with areas of clay and loam soils or areas with poor drainage have found it extremely difficult to get crops planted. Producers with crop insurance may file for a prevented planting loss and receive a crop insurance payment for prevented planting.

The final planting dates in Wisconsin are May 31 for corn for grain, June 5 for corn for silage, June 10 for soybeans in the northern 2/3 of the state, and June 15 for the southern 1/3 of the state. Acres planted after these dates are still insured, but the farmer must notify the crop insurance agent, even if he does not have late and prevented planting coverage. Small areas do not trigger late and prevented planting.
