Re: I have a feeling……

Went to Cedar Rapids Iowa today. Saw one bean field up.

Saw thousands and thousands of acres of corn up and looking good between Des Moines and there. Very high % of the area was planted.

Saw one small UNharvested corn field north of Iowa City????

Had .36" early this AM, great on my yesterday's shallow planted beans. 3/4mi north of house barely settled the dust.

Re: I have a feeling……

Just got a good start planting wise in my area last Thursday. Then on Saturday afternoon, we got anywhere from .3 to 1.2" And after a beautiful day yesterday, we got another .9" overnight.   It's gonna be a while before I get back to planting. I think that I'll just sit back for a few days and watch the grain markets go higher. 

I would guess that 30-40% of the corn is planted and 10-15% of the beans are planted in my neck of the woods.

Re: I have a feeling……

It was just barely getting dry enough on Saturday to get back into the field. Late Saturday afternoon, we got another rain. This time anywhere from .6 to 1.5"  It's been mostly cloudy since.  More rain forecasted for Wednesday.    It's sure looking like there will be lots of acres in this area planted in June.
