Re: SW---Weather

Not sure if the rain will hang together long enough to get to me, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Hobby, looks like your west operation might be getting some nice rain. Couple more of these, and you can kiss that insurance check goodbye.

Also looks like the rain is once again bearing down on the Iowa area. If this is the case, would that be the final straw for most of the unplanted corn or have we already reached that point.

Re: SW---Weather

I haven't actually went out to check my rain gauge, but weatherbug said the weather station just 4 blocks away from me has received .50" since midnight and it is still raining lightly and looks like it might continue for most of the morning. We have been temporarily blessed with moisture in this area.

.25 to .5 is all in NW KS Just can't believe how no matter which way the rain comes from, it can split and go around.

Re: SW---Weather

I completely agree with your statement Hobby. With as much rain as some of our neighbors have received, especially in the Saline County, Kansas area, 1/2" isn't an impressive amount. However, I'm not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, so I will gladly accept anything we can receive. Hope you and SW are able to get some more out in your areas.

Re: SW---Weather

I'm assuming this is for corn only Hobby, what's the end of the chain for soybeans? Looks like the big mass of rain that will be exiting Kansas is heading straight for Northern Mo. and into Iowa. I'm amazed that 600 or so miles can hold the same problem, just at opposite ends of the extreme.

Beans insurance date in S Iowa is 15th June

 

I used to say the 25th of June but in '08 I had replant that went in the 2nd of July was flooded July 24th and killed all the leaves but grew new ones and made 26 1/2 BUT had a late frost/freeze that year. The dealer said stay with normal season beans and do not shorten up the maturity on them or they would not get tall enough to combine. He was right.

 

Can be a big difference between South Podunk Country and farther up north into the real farming country.
