As the cold, wet weather continues it’s getting more people nervous about switching hybrids and changing plans. I’m not too worried about it right now for the Blank Slate. I have an early hybrid for the area, and I’m placing a majority of my fertilizer with the planter. If I can’t get the corn in, not many people will.
The only real challenge on the Blank Slate field with all the moisture we’ve been getting is the three lower areas in the field. They comprise about 10 acres total, so it’s no huge loss if they can’t be planted on time. Hopefully we get our drainage plan approved this year and are able to tile soon.
Stay positive and have a Happy Easter!
