Panic button engaged.......

14" inches of snow here overnight and into today. I'm officially in panic mode. It will be gone by the beginning of next week, but will take at least 5 days of good weather to dry up. May 10th before we start.IMG_1924.JPG

Hang in there WCWISC.  Just remember you are not alone.  Almost the entire corn belt is facing delays.

We are at 12 inches and counting in Northern Iowa. You know it's bad when we are thinking of reviewing our crop insurance policy!!!!!!! That's beyond Panic and into the "What the HELL is HAPPENING MODE"

Re: Panic button engaged.......

you are far from alone my friend

 

your moisture came as white fluffy stuff

 

ours came in the form of pounding rain

 

water back on the fields, just when things were getting close

 

if it was sunny and 70 today, planters would be rolling

 

we need 5-7 good drying days to pull this thing around AGAIN

 

still some time, that said, I dug the panic button out this AM and got it greased up

Re: Panic button engaged.......

You guys are going about it all wrong.... You need to be sending them to the traders on the CBOT.

 

Theirs seem to be broken.

No need to panic.  We can take it up and take it on the downside.  Very simple.

Re: Panic button engaged.......

I feel your pain.  My snow total here is 13 inches.  I planted 220 acres corn on Mon/early Tues in s.central MN.  Ground worked up good and soil temp was 60 at 4 inches.  Perhaps I'll get to plant it again.

Re: Panic button engaged.......

There had to be a very sharp cut-off on this snowstorm, although I own farmland in Northern Iowa, I live in the southern Twin Cities and we got less than 1 inch of snow. However, less than 50 miles due south of me in the Twin Cities, here is the snow total for there so far:

 

Rochester, MN   15.5 INCHES
