I'll have 10% Set Aside

120 acres of beans underwater with no end in sight to the precip.....PP Beans is next Wednesday.   No way bottoms will be replanted, so they will be failed....also have 200 acres of wheat that would be going to double crop....we'll be mudding wheat out, no double crop soys for me....take Prevent Plant Double Crop.

 

There is substantial widespread damage in both beans and corn....irreversible in many cases.  We're in the 8-12" area until Tuesday...

Darn frustrating isn't it?  If we don't have good yields it isn't because of lack of farmer trying. Yep those farmer peeps are special!

Less unplanted acres by the minute around here. Seed shuttles on the move. Plant today and only a 5% hit on the guarantee, 

 

Hope they have a good supply of ink and paper ordered this fall at the insurance co' s.

 

This crop has no roots under it at this time, .the soil went from froze out mellow and perfect to wet muck and now working on concrete. Speaking for my very immediate area only.
