Planting delays and corn prospects

URBANA – April 2013 turned into a "second March," with wet weather and cool temperatures persisting into the last week of the month and corn planting progress in Illinois stuck at 1 percent as May 1 approached. Nationally, only 5 percent of the corn crop was planted by April 28, and none of the Corn Belt states had more than 2 percent planted, according to University of Illinois crop sciences professor Emerson Nafziger.
