4 percent of corn fields in Wisconsin planted

GREEN BAY (WXOW) – A wet spring has allowed about 4 percent of corn fields to be planted in Wisconsin.

The National Agriculture Statistics Service says this is well behind the normal pace of about 26 percent by this time.

It's a similar scenario across America, where 12 percent of the nation's cornfields have been planted.  That's about a quarter of what was planted by this date over the previous five years.

Most of the planting done in Wisconsin has been to the south.  According to WLUK-TV, Brown County agriculture agent Mark Hagedom says there isn't much being done to the north, but that could change in three to five days without any major rainfall.
