Happy 4th of July...!!!

Happy 4th of July everyone! We continue to remain dry. Our saving grace while our corn pollinates is that the temperatures have moderated to the lower 80's with evening temperatures down in the 50's. We are simply buying time for our corn crop until it can rain again. 

All our roadsides have been mowed and are looking good for the long weekend. Automated Ag has started putting up our two new grain bins and we have begun working on harvest equipment. After the holiday we will spend a lot of time scouting our corn for leaf diseases such as grey leaf spot, northern corn leaf blight, and rust. We will then make the decision on whether or not to call the air plane to spray the field.  

Many pictures with this update, but not a lot of commentary as the summer rolls on. Hope you and your family have a great and safe 4th of July!
Making a late nitrogen application to our corn.

Our 24 inch tram lines are barely noticeable in tasseling corn, but they work great to allow us to apply nitrogen late into the season.

Adding a bin to the existing two along Rt. 125 outside of Pleasant Plains.

We are also putting up a replacement bin near our shop.

This is not my picture, but I saw it on Twitter and thought it was too good not to post on our blog. Amazing the power of a soybean plant.
