Last year it was drought, but now too much rain is taking a toll on many Wisconsin farmers' crops.

2013 is one of the wettest springs on record in the state.

Farmers haven't been able to plant as planned.

Corn farmers' crops are behind schedule.

To help recoup some losses, Governor Scott Walker has asked the federal government for help declaring 24 counties disaster zones.

The agriculture secretary has approved the request, paving the way for federal aid.
