It has been a busy two weeks since I last posted. Since my last update we have completed our anhydrous ammonia applications and have begun planting corn. We are quickly approaching the 50% completion level with our corn planting.
This spring and the recent weather have been a welcomed change compared to last year. For the last two years we have started planting corn on today's date and both year's have been cool and on the wetter side. Quite the contrary for this spring - recent warm temperatures and daily 10-20 mph winds have dried out our soils quickly. We are now keeping a close eye on our soil moisture and doing everything within reason to plant our corn seeds in moisture to ensure even emergence.
