Last weekend's rains put a halt to fieldwork in most of Fayette County.

Before those showers came, area farmers had virtually completed their corn planting, and were well into soybean planting. Statewide, 90 percent of the beans are in the ground, and 67 percent have emerged. The rig pictured above sits near a field just north of Vandalia – just waiting for the soil to dry.
