Week ending April 28th...

Still no corn planted.  And the temperatures and rainfall continue to delay our planting progress.  The 10 acres of "practice" corn we planted on April 5th has now emerged, although it is extremely yellow and the stand is sporadic.  We have caught up on most jobs and are now working on jobs we would normally work on during the summer. 

The forecast doesn't look promising and we are planning our next move to get corn in the ground quickly when the weather finally allows.  The prevent planting date for our area is June 5th which is still a month away, but we will need some very warm temperatures for extended periods of time to get our corn planted before the deadline.

Our "practice" corn has emerged - although it's very yellow.
