ECIN............After today, you won't have to go that far to find a place to fish.

Re: The pump is primed

Plenty of time to make a good crop...not so sure on that one. Totally saturated on 5/5 with highs in the low 50's the next few days. Guessing we could get back in the fields 5/12 if we're lucky and plant in the mud. Point being it is already after 5/10 at that point, and conditions will not be good, so hard to grow a "good crop".  Average surely, but the conditions really load the pressure on late July weather, thus odds of a "good" crop would be well below average I suspect.

 

I just think Mizzou's title of the post is appropriate.

Re: The pump is primed

The corn here in Iowa is struggling, the emerged corn looks pale green, yellow, and standing still.  It will eventually start to grow.  The later planted corn has sprouted but growing very little.  May take 20 plus days to emerge.  Any yield loss from this?  Does this cold, wet, windy weather when the the seedlings are trying to "get established" cause any yield loss down the road?  Maybe.  This last cold rain event had a sharp bite to it.

Plan on traveling to N AR friday for a wedding, so will get a good look at MO.  Hope the roads are open.

Oh boy Time ! Sounds like your turning into a doom and gloomer here ! I know - ALL you need to do is read informa ! I read where there raising bean yields in S.A. ---- Again - and even raising there - Guess - on wheat !  Then I read el-cheapo and was just starting to believe him it was bad out there - gee - I guess you need to watch on what they post up here = fake news : )))))) 

 

I would bet they ( informa ) will raise yields on both corn and beans here before long - rain makes grain you know !

 

Don't worry Time - All you need is some good ole Vitamin D ( sunshine ) and you will back to yourself ! For a fellow Hoosier ??? No Charge - Smiley Happy

Re: The pump is primed

I look at corn yield like a bucket of water. Every time corn stresses, it's like a hole gets punched into that bucket. For corn that's sitting in cold, damp fields right now, there is already a yield reduction. For corn that's sitting in the shed, the bucket is still full, but late planting and possible nitrogen leaching could punch a hole in the yield bucket before that corn even leaves the shed. 

 

In the end, we harvest only what's left in that yield bucket, and most of the time it's only about half of what we started with.

Re: The pump is primed

good to read you Mizzou....

 

Well for sure the corn boat is taking on water....

 

Just saw a graphic on the peaking of the River system ...... still several days away.in areas.... a lot of water to flush through the system

 

Panhandle region is officially ---- well by monday ..... one month behind on corn planting....and waiting to dry out    a very seldom occurrence...

Re: The pump is primed

I've got an idea.......let's send the wheat quality tour up to iowa and ill, to do an estimate......

 

they'll throw out all the bad data, and look at the 100 acres that are doing well, and declare a record crop !!!!

 

hey...give me a break, I've got to do something to get me out of this foul mood.....poor ole BA is walking sideways after

 

I got done with him this morning !

Re: The pump is primed

Well....as of 12:00 noon we're standing at 15.5" of rain in the last two weeks.  I only planted 20% of my acreage to corn....it is all up, but has been standing in cold water for over 10 days....Now we have plenty of waterways giving it up and blowing through the road ditches.   I have 800 acres of beans planted.  The April 15 planting finally emerged and looks like little green and yellow golf tees with tiny balls on them....haven't opened up yet....now been sitting in water....cold water...for way too long.    For us, they call for rain through weekend and 3 days of 5 next week.   I think its June 1st before the repair and evaluation can begin.....and for me....I think time is up.   

 

Hindsight being 20/20, I should have not worked a single acre, left the stalks alone and not pulled the tractor out of the shed to plant anything yet.   If I've got 1/2 stand of beans, I'm not replanting.   Remaining unplanted acres best go to PP Corn and repair the water damaged spots.  Not many good choices to be made.   Such is life.   Prayers and thoughts to those hardest hit.
