ROUGH SPRING: A cold, rainy spring prevented hundreds of thousands of acres from being planted in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.

See how many prevented plant acres there are in your county

Get a look at prevented plant acres per county in New York, New England and the Mid-Atlantic.

More than 245,000 prevented plant acres have been reported in New York state, by far the largest amount of any state in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.

But it’s not widespread across the state. Most of the prevented plant acreage is in the northwest part of the state, in the counties hugging Lake Ontario between Syracuse and Rochester, and in the northern part of the Finger Lakes.

Niagara County farmers reported 38,231 prevented plant acres, the most of any county, with 23,237 prevented plant corn acres. The next four prevented plant counties were Ontario County, 20,714; Livingston County, 19,180; Orleans County, 19,143; and Monroe County, 17,045.

Overall, 18% of the state’s corn was not planted due to the unusually cold and wet spring.

We have mapped out the prevented plant acreage by county in New York and we will update the map as additional reports come in next month and in the fall.
