At mid-afternoon Tuesday, corn planting concluded on Doug Strickler’s farms. Other area farmers are at about the same stage.

“We had a good, smooth planting season once the ground dried,” Strickler said

He started on March 30, a little later than usual because of rainfall, which set the stage with good moisture in the seedbed. “We could use another rain in a day or two,” Stickler said. It appears from today’s forecast that will occur.
