ALBANY, GA (WALB) –You may notice more farmers out in the fields.

That's because its planting time for many crops.

Many farmers are starting to plant peanuts, cotton and other major row crops.

Last year, farmers got a lot of work done ahead of schedule because of a dry winter.

But this year it's just the opposite and some farmers got behind on getting their land ready for planting.

"Right now is pretty much ideal for me because it is dry enough we can go anywhere we want to go, like to see a little rain but if we don't get the raid we are going to start watering just to be able to plant," said Frank Brooks, local farmer.

Brooks says you will see farmers planting through the end of May.
