April 22: We have finished planting corn. The earlier fields are starting to peek out of the ground. We will probably start planting soybeans tomorrow. Jeff Jarboe – Loda, IL
April 21: Started the Monday after Easter, things didn’t go well until Wednesday, and managed to get 1/3 in before the rain Saturday night. We received over 3 in. of rain and we’ve been sitting since. Hard frost last night; I only know of one field up over by Pearl City in this area. Hope to get back to it Monday. Aron Carlson – Winnebago, IL
April 21: Finished corn on Thursday. First corn I planted is up and looking good. Waiting at least a week to start planting soybeans. Jim Reed – Monticello, IL
April 21: Saturday morning brought light frost. Mostly no work done this week up here north of Rt. 30. We snuck peas in and sprayed them Wednesday afternoon before another light shower. Paul Taylor – Esmond, IL
Take a look. Nationally, corn farmers are way ahead of the previous year’s progress.
