Farmers in Illinois made up for any lost time with planting last week and continued with other work in the field under warm and dry conditions. USDA Statistician Mark Schleusener says that farmers found temperatures around the state above normal, those warm temps dried fields and allowed for the final stretch of soybean planting to occur.



Farmers were also busy with in season fertilizer treatments and cutting 
hay and alfalfa for animal feed.
