Planting is done!

by on June 4, 2014

We finished bean planting on May 23rd!  With some 80 degree temperatures and a lot of sunshine, the crop is starting to get good color and is looking well.

We have started sidressing corn and are getting ready to start a new fertilizer application which will allow us to apply nitrogen to the plant later in season on taller corn.  Basically, this lets us spoon feed the crop and give it the nitrogen it wants throughout the growing season. We will also be applying herbicide and fungicide in June to both corn and beans in an attempt to keep them clean and healthy as long as possible.

The last couple days, we’ve received some much needed rain which should make the crops really take off!
