An early spring for Missouri farmers

Missouri farmers made good planting progress in April.

In northern Missouri, Wes Shoemyer says it’s the fastest he’s ever planted a crop. He started planting corn and soybeans in early April and finished up April 26.

“I’ve never been done by May 1 and have had years I didn’t think of starting until mid-May,” he says. “I think we may need a rain to cover up some mistakes though. We’re hoping and praying for a rain before long.”

Shoemyer says there’s not much rain in the forecast, but he is not worried yet.
