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".

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.

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?
