Wet Planting Season Across the Midwest
Spring planting is off to a slow start. 70% of the corn in the US and 91% of the beans has yet to be planted. With a strong El Nino event forecasted to last until Fall 2019, proper soil health is critical to a successful year. This year is clear evidence that warmer surface ocean temperatures can impact our local farming day to day operations. Compaction and pore drainage will limit the soil's ability to drain properly and dry quickly. Correcting the cause of soil compaction and improving soil health is vital to building the soil's resiliency to these variable weather patterns.
