Ohio farmers are getting field work done earlier this spring than last year when work was delayed by rain. The U-S-D-A’s Agricultural Statistics Service says that as of Sunday, Ohio farmers had planted 18 percent of their corn crop. That’s more than two weeks ahead of last year, and five days ahead of the five-year average. Soybean planting is estimated as five percent complete, about a week ahead of last year and two days ahead of the five-year average.
