(UNDATED) - A corn specialist with Purdue Extension says the growing season in Indiana has gotten off to a very uneven start.

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

Nielsen says, even on the same property, farmers have seen healthy green plants in a few places, with wilted yellow plants in other parts.
