(UNDATED) - Warm winter could present challenges for agriculture.

Johnson County Purdue Extension Educator Bill Doig says bulbs may die off and fungus and disease could attack crops.

The biggest challenges that may be seen is with the weeds and some of the soybean and corn where the pathogens haven't been killed off because of the mild winter.

Doig says livestock is even being affected because the tick and parasite population never died off, which means extra treatments will be needed this spring.
