(Undated) -- Corn farmers in Minnesota are behind schedule. The USDA says only 56-percent of the state's corn was planted by last week, which is ten days behind the five-year average of 83-percent. Crops aren't emerging as well as previous years, either, due to the cooler temperatures this planting season. Corn has been emerging two weeks later than normal, with only six-percent having emerged at all.
