Re: How wet is it?

That's a pretty good description of what I saw in Southern Iowa along the Missouri line in Appanoose, Putnam, and Wayne Counties.

 

I think they call it 'Grey Till or Glacial Till'.  A real tight soil typically about 2-3' feet under the top soil that stop's natural drainage on the spot.

 

Well - I've seen guys plant corn down there on the 2nd of July before.  

 

What do the seed genetics yield in that area for Corn and Beans planted the first of July?

 

I got 33 Bushels in Central Iowa a couple years ago replanting Soybeans.

 

It's seriously going to take a long time to dry out South Central Iowa and Northern Missouri.  That area had some 5-6" rainfalls the Central Iowa missed on top of it all.
