This is what 250 bushel corn looks like

Last year

Not so much this year

Planted first of May. Had maybe 1/3 stand. Replanted early June. Got maybe 1/2 stand now. Just now dried out enough to drive on it. Too late to redo now

Over 36 inches of rain in 60 days

Guessing the farm makes 50-70 this year.

Local bto pulled in this AM with a spinner bed and some treated beans. Yep. Slung em on. Guessing he couldn't return them so just decided to spin em on. Cut ruts doing it too. Probably claim a planting date of mid June and never pull a combine in. Collect insurance check and move on.

I've never seen a mess this bad in my life and most of those much older than me can't either. I hope I never see one like it again

Re: This is what 250 bushel corn looks like


This is second creek bottom ground that 9 out of 10 years runs 200 plus

Nothing is designed to handle 36 inches of rain in 60 days. Nothing.

We have century old well maintained pastures and hay ground that now have gullies in them. Nothing went unscathed this spring. Nothing
