Zach Profit, Aug. 24

We are in good shape. I think our crop is probably made here. I think we will have a big corn crop here. We had 2.5 inches of rain early this week. That may even be on the lighter end of what fell in the area. Some places northwest in …

We’re done with corn and over halfway with beans. Our first planted stuff should be up today. It started popping through yesterday. We started on the 27th and finished about 6 last night. It has been pretty much optimal. We had a little shower come through and we got a …

We talked about spraying Sunday but we did not because it got windy. We are starting this morning to get that going so we can plant beans at a decent time. The sunlight is giving the weeds a head start. There is some marestail getting started out there. It looks …
