(Indianapolis, Ind.) - Hoosier farmers are still having difficulty getting their corn planted.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's statistics service reports just 59 percent of the state's corn crop was in the ground as of Sunday, down from 93 percent at this time last year and below the five-year average of 87 percent.
Of the corn that's been planted, 42 percent has emerged.
The progress in Indiana was slowed by rain nearly all week last week.
