Farmers urged to scout fields
By Emma Rausch
 
Cold, wet weather from April into May might have only lasted a few weeks, but it may have taken its toll on Wabash County crops, and it’s too early to tell to what extent, according to Curt Campbell, Wabash County Purdue Extension educator.
 
Right now, farmers should “be out there scouting their fields and keeping check to see the condition of the seed and potential of it still germinating,” Campbell told The Paper of Wabash County.
 
“If rains can hold off for a while, we still have plenty of time to get our crops planted,” he said.
