CHAMPAIGN COUNTY -- Farmers are taking advantage of warmer weather and getting in the fields. Throughout rural Champaign County Wednesday, tractors could be seen working away. For many farmers, it was their first chance to plant since the season began about a month ago.

Farmers say even though the rain put them behind, it was also a huge help. That's because it helped replenish the soil from last year's drought.
