Prevented planting deadline looms

05/27/2011 - 06/07/2011

As the final planting date for federal crop insurance on corn approaches many areas of a waterlogged Corn Belt, farmers are wrestling with a decision that gives even ag economists a headache.

 

In some areas, such as Nebraska, the final planting date (May 25) has passed, but for Iowa and most of Illinois it’s next week, May 31. And in Indiana and soggy Ohio, it’s June 5.
