MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Corn growers are warning drivers to watch out for farm machinery as the harvest season approaches.

The Wisconsin Corn Growers Association says motorists can expect to see more farm equipment on the roads in the coming weeks as the harvest beings.

The association says most farm machinery tops out at 25 mph, leading motorists to miscalculate how fast they’re approaching the machinery.

The group also says farmers should have the proper slow-moving-vehicle signs on their equipment as well as additional lighting and reflective tape so they’re more visible after dark. They should take a few extra seconds to check their blind spots when making turns and stay as refreshed as possible during long harvest days.
