Corn Planting DelaysCheck out this video how farmers are losing valuable top soil with the recent heavy rains. Going from one extreme to the next; from drought to flooding.

How is your spring planting coming along? A lot of growers like to plant in late April. It appears that this last cold front with accompanying snow should be our last one in the midwest. The 10-day forecast looks much better with temperatures in the 60’s and 70’s by this weekend.

This report, “Shoot for May? Corn planting creeps along” suggests a starting date of May 1, 2013. For now, all we can do is wait it out and make sure everything is ready to go.
