Fall tillage in winter
local picture
Area farmers, such as this one along Burkettsville-St. Henry Road in rural Coldwater, were busy Tuesday turning the soil in fields that finally were dry enough to enter. Fall tillage is typically completed in November, but this year wet weather delayed planting and harvest. Some corn and soybeans still remain in the fields, said Mike Baucher, a program technician with the Mercer County Farm Service Agency. Farmers typically are finished with harvest by Nov. 15.
