Re: wet weather


Our farm is on the eastern edge of Wisconsin. Here we have gotten ideal amounts of rain. However, you don't have to go far to find flooding. On the western border with Minnesota, my Dad talked to a guy that had 7 inches with 12 inches falling just north of him. In the hilly areas, there are [sign in to see URL] the flat areas, there is water standing.

There will, no doubt, be losses and some that needs to be replanted. Most of the corn is less than half a foot tall.

Re:


It is very wet [sign in to see URL]'m south west of trident on the south west side of the gb airport. We have lots of standing water in the fields but everything is planted. The tallest corn is about 5 inches tall. We finished planting right after first crop alfalfa and just a few days ago before the most recent rain storms rolled in. It was only a few acres-everything else is was done a few weeks ago. All we need is some sunshine and days without rain. No reason to worry for [sign in to see URL].
