First-day corn planting always a challenge

On March 16, Heaton Farms, Clarksdale, Miss., began planting corn. According to farm manager Preston Parker, Heaton Farms will plant approximately 3,500 corn acres in 2013 — up slightly from 3,100 corn acres in 2012. With corn seed partially supplied by Dulaney Seed Inc., Clarksdale, Miss., Parker estimates planting will take just under two weeks.
