Planting corn on "Ott" Reiken's farm outside of Pleasant Plains, cira early 1980's.
Planting corn in Greene County last spring.

I had hoped that I would be able to post that we have been the fields applying nitrogen and working ground, but a 1" rain on Thursday followed by a 0.5" rain early this morning took care of that. The forecast does look promising for field work to resume later this week as temperatures reach the 60's & 70's.

We were able to get one of the anhydrous ammonia toolbars started on Wednesday, but due to a bad servo-valve, we only got 50 acres completed. However, it is good to have the "bugs" worked out of it so we can cover acres the next time mother nature allows. Since it is not uncommon for farmers in our area to plant this time of year in years past, I thought I would post a few past pictures of our planting operation.
