Farmers Who Can’t Plant Wet Fields Mull Options

Northwest Iowa — Iowa State University Extension has been hosting meetings for farmers with soggy fields who have to make decisions about delayed planting.

Gentry Sorenson is a field agronomist with ISU Extension who’s based in northwest Iowa.

Workshops were held in Spencer, Spirit Lake and Emmetsburg last week.

According to the National Weather Service, nearly seven inches of rain fell late last week in Cleghorn — just a few days after torrential downpours in places like Storm Lake and Aurelia.
