Weather has had a significant impact on the planting of Lambton County crops.

Lambton Federation of Agriculture spokesman Don McGugan says less than 5% of corn planting and 1% of soybeans are in the ground.

He estimates 20% of winter wheat did not survive the long, cold winter

He says what’s needed now is a stretch of dry, warm weather.
