Rain Delays: A wet start is keeping some farmers out of the fields

Despite the expected drought, a wet start to spring has kept many farmers out of the fields.

A fifth-generation farmer in Maryland has seen 8 inches of rain in just ten days. He has not been able to apply the second round of fertilizer on his wheat crop, and the crop desperately needs it.

He says that when the weather finally breaks, it will be a nightmare situation as spring fertilizer will be needed on corn, soybeans, and wheat at the same time.

There are already concerns about the lack of fertilizer in the area due to recent port issues.
Producers in Arkansas and Alabama also received enough precipitation to stay out of the fields.
