It’s Spring Planting Season!


Farmers are busy planting corn and soybeans throughout the county. The planting season typically runs from April through May.

Nearly 68% of farmland will be planted with field corn. About 32% will be planted with soybeans. These are the county’s top crops which are currently being planted on thousands of acres.

The rest of the farmland will have crops such as wheat, hay, oats, and specialty crops.

DeKalb County’s crops provide economic value to our local communities as well as food, fiber and fuel.
