Seems rather chilly out there today. After an overnight temperature of 38ºF (3C), it has climbed up to 62ºF (16C). The wind is blowing a bit too strong for John to be able to spray. But Ross is having a good afternoon, starting out with the corn planter. He is using our CIH STX 420 Rowtrac with a CIH 2150 24-row planter. On this first day, it is typical to have a ‘slow start’, as you discover just how well the planter is working. After a few rounds, he will make any needed adjustments, and then he can continue with greater confidence that all is working well.
I expect to return to #plant21 for soybeans tomorrow. Last weekend’s rain has taken many days to allow the soil surface to dry down!
C’mon, warmer days!
