(UNDATED) - A corn specialist with Purdue Extension says Indiana's Growing season has started off uneven.

Dr. Robert L. Nielsen is a Professor of Agronomy at Purdue University and an Extension Corn Specialist.

Nielsen says heavy rains in April and May left standing water and caused delayed planting in many parts of the state, while other areas of the state have experienced unusually hot and dry conditions.

Nielsen says that even on the same property, farmers have seen healthy green plants in some places and wilted yellow plants in other parts.
