Optimistic for the growing season

These cool, wet conditions are preventing farmers from planting corn crops.
Adams county farmers say this isn't out of the ordinary.
Farmers try and plant corn somewhere between the first week of April and the first week of May.
Since it's only mid-April farmers are still optimistic about this year's growing season.
"I have been farming for over thirty years. I have been through the worst droughts in history. I have been through the worst floods in history. You just roll with the flow and keep on going," Adams County Farmer Dave Dedert said.
Farmers say if they don't start planting by the first week of May, corn yield will begin to suffer by about one bushel per day the field is unplanted.
