LG Seeds news
The last few days of summer are coming to an end as we approach harvest time. I must say I do love harvest, not only because the sights and smells, but also we can finally reap the benefits of all the work we did throughout the year.
The heat moved in on us and hasn’t let up. Up until now we lucked out and haven’t seen many 90-plus degree days, let alone multiple days in a row. Seems like things really sped up and started to either die or change from growth mode to dry down mode rather quickly.
This week has been all over the board. I’ve kept busy signing fields, scouting crops, kicking off seed meetings and mowing roadsides. I started the week with our area sales rep from LG Seeds.
I’ll start by trying to catch you up to date on crops and conditions in our area. Early April was great as we experienced ideal ground conditions and favorable weather and everyone’s attitudes were in a good place.
Farmers can expect favorable planting conditions compared to last year’s spring months, according to Matt Teply, a technical team agronomist for LG Seeds and certified crop adviser.
