Farmers who can't get into their fields to work because of excessive June rainfall shouldn't surrender to Mother Nature, a Purdue University Cooperative Extension Service specialist said Thursday.


About a foot of rain fell in many parts of Indiana in the month's first 23 days, leaving thousands of acres of corn, soybeans and hay either in standing water or in drenched soils, and producers desperate to tend to their crops.


There's still time for growers to work their fields if weather conditions improve and soils dry, said Tony Vyn, cropping systems specialist.
