2023 already underway

Thursday, October 27, 2022

We are already working on the 2023 crop.  Today, Nutrien is applying some fertilization for next year’s soybeans.  They’ve been at these applications for next year’s corn and soybeans most days since harvest finished.

Nick from Nutrien spreads the P, K, and micronutrients for this field of 2023 soybeans.

Clean-up on the equipment has begun also.  Three of the trucks have been washed, and now the red combine is on the wash pad.  The CIH 420 Rowtrac Tractor is also clean and shiny.

Jake is working on making the 8250 shine!

The JD 9520R is waiting patiently for its turn on the wash pad. The CIH 420 Rowtrac has already been there. Can you tell the difference?

We met yesterday with our seed dealer and his area rep, and made our seed selections from the DeKalb and Asgrow line-up.  It took almost 3 hours to get through those discussions.

All these are signs of getting ready for #plant23

The nights are chilly, but the days are sunny and in the 60s.  Not bad at all.

Have a nice weekend.
