Recently planted corn struggles in a rain soaked field near Farmingdale, Ill., Tuesday April 26, 2011. More than three times the usual rainfall over the past week, below-average temperatures and tornado damage to equipment and soil have combined to bring a halt to spring planting from one end of Illinois to the other.
