It’s been called the biggest gam­ble on earth… It’s also been called farm­ing.

Farm­ers are now tak­ing to the fields to get a start on plant­ing after a very wet April pre­vented many farm­ers from get­ting started until recently.

Ag experts expect to see a lot of activ­ity out in the fields over the next cou­ple of weeks.

Accord­ing to the Ohio field office of the U.S. Depart­ment of Agriculture’s Agri­cul­ture Sta­tis­tics Office, only 7 per­cent of corn had been planted as of May 5. Typ­i­cally, 39 per­cent is planted by then in our area.
