4.23.10 – Shifting Focus

With the corn crop planted, we have shifted our focus to soybeans. This year, we are growing seed beans for Monsanto and non-gmo soybeans through an ADM program. Weather permitting, we anticipate planting beans in 7-10 days and hope to also begin side-dressing corn around then too. Our early planted corn has spiked through the soil and is now visible from the road… the .8″ of rain over the past few days has helped expediate the process. The weekend forecast is calling for heavier showers, which would be great for growth. I hope to begin spraying our soybean acres next week.
