Iowa farmer says the clock is ticking

A north-central Iowa farmer says they are finally getting a break in the weather.

St. Ansgar farmer Chris Edgington says they need a solid two-week window to get their crops in the ground. “The clock is definitely ticking,” he said. “It doesn’t happen overnight, and it doesn’t happen in every area all the time.”

But, he tells Brownfield, “Hopefully some of these storm events that they are talking about coming forward will not show up and that will give us an opportunity to get in the field.”

He says his family didn’t get anything planted in April or the first week of May.
