Great weather...

Great weather again this week allowed us to complete a few more projects. While we were not able to get in the fields, the sunshine is doing a good job of drying the fields. We hope we can miss the rains forecasted for this weekend and possibly get in the fields and begin anhydrous ammonia applications soon.

Installing the new Precision Planting 20/20 "Down-Force" system on the big planter. This system will automatically adjust the down-pressure on each row unit as we travel through the field. We are more concerned with having too much down-pressure and this system also allows the row unit to be lifted; thus dramatically reducing the compression of the soil surrounding the seed trench.

Bedolli Excavating also arrived this week and began leveling the spoil from last fall's ditch cleaning project at the Williamsville farm.
