Minnesota farmers are continuing to deal with wet and muddy fields as the snow continues to melt in some regions. USDA reporters say only a couple of hours were suitable for fieldwork all week. The snowmelt has helped recharge soils, as both topsoil and subsoil are rated 67% adequate, with 23% of topsoil having surplus water. A weather system also dumped more than five inches of rain in a small area of northwestern Minnesota last week. USDA says the farmers they contacted were still preparing equipment for the upcoming planting season.
