Prevented or Delayed in Planting?
Excessive moisture and flooding in 2019 have prevented or delayed planting on many farms across most of the country. Many producers are unable to plant crops by a final planting date or have experienced significant delays in planting.
USDA knows producers are facing tough times and is working to assist producers with making decisions. A few options include:
- Earlier haying, grazing, and chopping of cover crops; and
- Targeted assistance to plant cover crops.
