Corn

#Plant16 Wraps Up

The last of our 2016 soybean crop has made it into the ground!  We kicked off #Plant16 in mid-April with great weather and long days of simultaneous corn and bean planting, but we were interrupted with cold, wet weather before all of our beans could be planted.  We used this little break to do equipment maintenance, catch up on office work, and do considerable crop scouting.  The last few days of dry, sunny, warm weather has helped us finish our soybean planting and accomplish over half our side-dressing work.  We are turning our focus to small patches of replant corn and beans, finishing side-dressing, and spraying.  It is exciting to watch the crops emerge and see how quickly they grow under the right conditions!
