Milo planted in the forground will be an insurance claim. Beans are getting there too.


 Last rain of any concequence was the first week of April. .01 inches in May. so far in June .29 and that was in two tries.


The last planting date for Milo and beans there is June 25 and the planters are dusting in an insurance claim in many locations. Prevented planting only works for too much mud, not too much dust.


With the early wheat harvest out there if there had been any rain beans or sunflowers would have been tried as a double crop. Not going to happen as there is NO moisture for it.
