Yesterday afternoon and evening, we received a really nice rain. We got between .7 and 1.0 inch (18 to 25mm), depending on the location. It was wonderful, just what we’ve needed for the crops, and we’re grateful. John finished the corn crop post-herbicide application yesterday afternoon. We think that the corn is now ‘laid by’– a term that means you have finished with any maintenance or treatment needed until harvest.
John took the water trailer to the local Nutrien plant, and got it switched over to apply soybean herbicides next week. Also, now today, Brandon is performing another brake repair, this time to one of our Wilson trailers. I think he will be replacing the tires, too. Stuff only lasts so long. Gotta have it up to par when it’s time to haul wheat next month!
Have a wonderful holiday weekend.
