Planting reaches the halfway point for southern Indiana farmer

Southern Indiana farmer Ben Kron says he’s reached the halfway point for corn and soybean planting.

“I probably need about another week to ten days to get completely done,” he says.

He tells Brownfield there were some initial challenges at the beginning of planting.

“Things seem to be going into the ground pretty good now. We had some issues with the first couple of fields. It seemed like it was a cold and wet thing. (The crops) were taking a little while to come out of the ground. There were some stand issues, but nothing at this point that is not able to be fixed,” he says. “We’ll have 10 acres in this field and 10 acres in that field, maybe, to replant and patch in to get it looking a little better. We drove around yesterday, and everything is actually looking pretty good.”

Kron is a second-generation farmer in Evansville, Indiana.
