The Wisconsin USDA-NASS Crop Progress report for May 20 indicated that only 43% of the corn crop had been planted. For Week 20, only the growing seasons of 1996 (38%) and 1979 (40%) have had slower corn planting progress. With the unsettled weather of this past week over much of the state, planting this year will be further delayed. Crop reporting districts with the slowest planting progress include the North Central (24%), North West (31%) and East Central (31%).
