After a rough start to planting season, things are finally starting to look up for Hoosier farmers.
Harvesting season is underway across the state, and Purdue Extension Office Educator Kenneth Eck says farmers are making progress.
Eck says this is way below average. The five-year average is 41%, and 49% of the state’s corn was harvested by this time last year.
Eck also says the soybean harvest is well below average.
But for counties south of Indianapolis, it’s a different story. Eck explains why.
