MILWAUKEE (AP) - Cool temperatures are creating worries for some farmers in Wisconsin.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture says the state has had three straight weeks of cooler-than-usual temperatures. It says that's hurting the development of some crops and there's a noticeable difference between those that were planted early and those planted later. The department says crops planted later need more heat to fully develop.
The report released Monday by the department's statistical arm says Wisconsin's average high temperature ranged from 77 to 79 degrees last week. That's 2 to 6 degrees below normal.
The average low temperature ranged from 53 to 61 degrees.
