ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

    As farmers use this drying time to catch up in their fields, they're hoping to avoid equipment problems that could cause further delays.    

Not only are tractors getting stuck in the fields, but they're also being damaged while farmers pull them out. Some lucky farmers have had minor problems, but with planting season already two weeks behind because of the weather, any significant mechanical problem is the last thing farmers need.  

"We've had two or three problems with our tractors the past few days either hydrologic problems or one thing or the other that has delayed us a little bit and we don't want any delays at this time," said Armond Morris, Georgia Peanut Farmer.  

The best way to prevent mechanical issues to check your equipment often and be alert for swampy areas in your field.
