7/7/13- Summer Transition

    The last few weeks have truly been action-packed around the farm!  We have finished sidedressing and spraying corn, and the early planted soybeans have been sprayed too.  We are currently waiting for the remainder of the soybeans to grow larger before the post-application is done.  Roadsides have been mowed, and the majority of […]

6/17/13 – News from around the farm

Corn and soybean planting was completed roughly a week ago, and recent weather has produced substantial rainfall and heat… ideal growing conditions.  Due to the the abundance of rain and soil meeting its water holding capacity threshold, we were forced to replant corn and soybeans in many areas.  The replanted acres have emerged, but those plants […]

5/27/13 – Spring Update

Since our last update, much has happened around our farm.  Corn planting stands at 90% completion, soybeans at 25% and the rain keeps coming!  Rainfall was the limiting factor and thief that stole corn yield in 2012… safe to say that 2013 has not experienced the same challenges.  As the conditions appear to move from […]

5/6/13: Spring showers and more…

Weather has continued to prove challenging for spring field operations.  Although we are thrilled to erase the past year’s moisture deficit, the rainfall received over the past month has left soil conditions at the saturation point and hampered the planting progress accross much of the country’s key corn regions.  Tile outlets are discharging water, road ditches […]

4/15/13: Spring Activities

  The snow was shortlived, and warmer temperatures brought spring showers.  Since the beginning of April, we have received roughly 2.5-4.5″ spread geographically over 3 rain events.  Prior to the rainfall, we had the opportunity to begin field operations… currently 25% done spraying preplant and 10% done working ground ahead of corn planting.  We are pleased to have […]

3/26/13 – Spring and snow

    Spring has officially arrived… and a foot of snow followed on its footsteps.  The past weeks have allowed us to make great strides in preparing for spring field operations, but also attend meetings and trade shows in Orlando, Louisville and Washington D.C.  Dennis had the opportunity to attend the National Farm Machinery show […]

2/18/13 – Around the farm…

Mild winter weather has continued to allow for outdoor projects to progress.  Tree removal/trimming and brush clearing operations are still moving forward as we move from farm to farm.  The tree removal process at Warrensburg has also been completed.   This project involved 6 parties contributing to removing overgrown treelines encroching on fields.  Great to have […]
