  • Progress spotty
    Out in the cornfields, things are all over the place. The first plantings of corn around here stayed in the ground for a good two to three weeks before it all came up.

    Pulling samples provided an opportunity to scout. Weed pressure is light, stands look even and populations are on target. 
  • Rain and replanting
