MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Almost a quarter of the Wisconsin corn crop is normally planted by now -- but thanks to our cold and wet spring, only two percent of the corn was in the ground as of Sunday.
Six percent of the spring field tillage is done, up from just one percent a week ago as tractors spent most of last week in the sheds again.
About 18 percent of the Wisconsin oat crop has been planted. That's five percent more than a week ago, but it's well below the norm of 59 percent by this date.
37 percent of the state's farm fields have surplus moisture, up from 35 percent a week ago.
All of the state's crop reporters say we need sunny and warmer weather. Oneida County still has frost in the ground.
