Rain didn’t fall this past week in the torrent that defined April.
There were even a few sunny days that allowed farmers to work in fields, but 0.3 inches more of rain Friday and Saturday meant another stutter in spring planting in Hardin County.
For those planting only row crops, that means planting is taking a little longer.
For tobacco farmers who also plant row crops, that means tobacco plants, corn and soybeans need to be planted as soon as possible.
Typically, corn and soybeans are planted between April 15 and early May.
