MACON, Miss. (WTVA) -- Noxubee County farmers are getting off to a soggy start.

Fields are too wet to begin planting.

Equipment remains in sheds and barns until the fields can be entered.

This is the same scenario as last year.

Farmers were ready to plant corn in April, and they were forced to sit that one out for a while.

They ended up planting corn, cotton and soybeans close together.

"The fields are wet. We'll get about a day away from planting and then it will rain again," said MSU Extension Service Agent Dennis Reginelli.

Although they began planting later than usual in 2013, the yields were excellent.
