Re: looks like.....

lets see rain makes grain? I was flooded and haven't planted one kernel or seed. I70 last week, I90 tonight, I'm thinking I need to change my vote to 190ish. :smileywink:

It is just here now. Nothing like keeping the mud freshened up. 3;40am

 

No need worrying "nothing is going to turn out all right any way".

hows this for getting a crop in the ground?

Well... 3.5" in a 18 hr. period has put water over the roads, big ponds in all fields, cut gullies. tiles now running full. so much for the early start, replant now a REAL possibility. WC Indiana.

Re: looks like.....

Looks like.......investing in tile was the right choice....investing in the irrigation might pay off later....

 

Ok,  what percentage of the 53% corn planted is affected by this sudden overabundance of rainfall?  How much of that will need to be replanted?  So much for the record planting pace.

 

Another question.....if farmers plant a field twice, does the USDA count those planted acres twice?     :smileywink:
