No cooperation from the weather yet….

Rain has continued to be the story for central Illinois this week. Since the last update we have had 4.4-6.4” more rain depending on location.  The only field work accomplished was to re-spray our cover crop fields with a burndown and pre-plant herbicide.  Hopefully the weather breaks soon.  We have never experienced a prevent-plant crop insurance situation here. In light of the current field conditions and economics we have begun to analyze and consider some of those scenarios on paper.
