Optimum corn planting dates are later ‘Up North’

This year farmers have been challenged by cool, wet conditions during April. Even though planting dates seem like they have been delayed, we still have not passed the optimum planting dates for corn. Wisconsin farmers can plant a large number of acres quickly. Since 1979, there have been five years when 40 percent or more of the acres were planted in one week. Between May 2-9, 1999, and April 30-May 7, 2000, farmers planted 1.5 million acres in one week (42 percent and 44 percent of the acres planted in those years).

Today, many people have purchased a few acres, put a fence around it and then bought a horse, or two or three, or more.
