Dear United Coop Patrons,

This has definitely been one roller coaster of a growing season.  With all of the rain early on it made it difficult to get the crop planted on time.  This has caused for a lot of up and down in the soybeans and corn.  We were forced to plant into less than ideal planting conditions and the effects have showed up in some areas. 

The rain is still continuing to fall and we still have soybeans to spray.  What we have sprayed up to this point has worked very well and I hope it continues to do so.  The weeds are starting to get too big to control and if we can get into the field it is time to get it sprayed while we stand a chance to kill the weeds.

When it hasn’t been too wet to walk the fields I have been looking at the corn and so far it looks pretty good.  If you don’t look at the drowned out spots in the field it looks like we will have a pretty good crop weather permitting.

We should keep a close eye on late season intactness since I have been seeing quite a bit of crown rot and root problems this year.  Other than that we are definitely in a lot better shape than other parts of the state.  We can be thankful that we got all of the crop planted even though it was not the kind of spring anyone would have hoped for.
