Wiregrass Research and Extension Agents say recent rains have farmers racing against the clock to put seeds in the ground.
Agents say right now is prime planting season but the Wiregrass has received more than a foot of rain in April.
That has delayed the crop.
They say cotton has had to be replanted and some farmers didn't have time to plant corn.
"They are just anxious and itching and ready to go because they know they are just way behind and we are having to cram in 2 moths worth of work into one and we keep losing on this month as well," said Kris Balkcom, research associate at the Wiregrass Research and Extension Center.
Farmers are hoping drier weather toward the end of the week will give them a chance to finish planting.
