ST. CLOUD — Recent rain has farmers dealing with a mixed bag here in central Minnesota.

University of Minnesota Extension Educator Dan Martens says there is a mix of sandy soil and heavier soils that is leaving some farmers dealing with flooded fields, while others are fairing okay.

But, Martens says farmers are having a hard time with weed control.  He says farmers are having a hard time getting into fields to spray the herbicides.

Martens says some farmers still have been unable to plant feed crops for cattle. He says that could pose a problem later in the summer when they run low on food for their animals.

Martens says dry, sunny weather will help most crops recover nicely.
