Wisconsin farmer pleased with crop progress so far
A southern Wisconsin farmer says crops look good despite a dry stretch of weather.
Luke Goessling grows corn and soybeans in the Whitewater area, about 20 miles north of the Illinois border. He says, “I think the earlier planted corn is there but the later planted stuff might have got hurt a little bit more.”
Goessling tells Brownfield growers in his area had no trouble passing knee-high by the 4th of July. “I would say 90% of everybody in our area all hit shoulder-high or better here for the 4th of July.”
Goessling says the dry spell didn’t impact the soybeans as much as the corn, and he’s optimistic some timely August showers will help finish the beans.
