Bush is urging farmers to be ready to go, but not to rush, “We don’t want to mud this crop in because that will reduce our yields all season long. I am telling my customers to be ready when the rain stops, but don’t go when the fields are still this wet.” He added that soil conditions across the southern part of the state are too wet and that many rivers have flooded low lying areas. He predicts that it will be at least another week in some areas and up to 3 weeks in others before planting can begin.
