The USDA reminds farmers to ensure everything is in order if they plant crops early this year.

The Risk Management Agency says unseasonably dry, warm weather has prompted questions about planting crops early this year.

Manitowoc County Ag Educator Angie Ulness says the recent rain has helped curb drought conditions in Wisconsin, and the soil is good to go for planting.

Before planting early, farmers should contact their crop insurance agent for crop-specific information, such as whether a crop can be grown early.

The USDA says having crop insurance is critical for farmers because it helps producers and owners manage revenue risks and strengthens the rural economy.
