(Neb.)-Most Farmers Still Waiting To Plant, Wary Of Weather

By: Associated Press Posted at: 04/10/2012 10:43 AM

     OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Most Nebraska farmers are still waiting to
start planting as the early spring gets a touch of frost.
     The U.S. Department of Agriculture says in the weekly crop
report on Monday that while conditions were favorable for planting
last week, only a limited number of fields were planted with most
farmers waiting for the crop insurance initial plant date.
     Temperatures averaged 3 degrees above normal in the western half
of the state, while the eastern half was up to 10 degrees warmer.
     March 2012 was the warmest on record for the central U.S., which
could lead to an increased risk for freeze damage - which could
happen this week. A freeze warning is issued for central and
eastern Nebraska into Tuesday morning. Lows could dip into the
upper 20s.
