An Indiana climate specialist says the state's spring planting forecast is looking good, with rain and temperatures expected
to be close to normal. Associate state climatologist Ken Scheeringa said many Indiana farmers are eager to plant this month
after last year's slow, wet start to the planting season. He said the forecast for the rest of the spring looks much better
than a year ago, when the state's weather was dominated by the La Nina weather cycle's cool, wet conditions.
