As farmers prepare for spring planting, the weather has created the potential for a delay.

However, farm analyst Kent Thiesse says the recent wind and warm weather has helped get things back on track.

The corn-planting window is usually the middle of April to the beginning of May.

Thiesse says there’s some optimism in Southern Minnesota as we head into the planting season, but of course the weather can change in a heartbeat. He says last year a big snowstorm hit on April 14.
