When will you plant your 2013 corn crop?

Last year at this time most farmers were either in the field or were more than ready to plant but were just waiting for that crop insurance date to arrive. This year Mother Nature had other ideas, at least in the northern Corn Belt. We'd like to know how your planting progress is this year. Did you get into your fields early to prep and plant on time? Are you running a week behind? Two weeks late? Or are you just going to plant your fields to vegetables and start a farmers market? Take our poll and let us know. Leave a comment to tell us when you started planting this year (or what date you anticipate being in the field) and where you're located.

Be certain to keep a clean makeup brush plus certain face powder inside a desk drawer at the job for a rapid touch up before going out with function mates. Dab several shimmering powder about a cheekbones, plus you’re wise to go. pure garcinia cambogia

several years ago I was talking with an area farmer. When he started farming, he was mow board plowing. The weather was warm, but the night before it snowed 2 - 4 inches, where the soil was sand, and the old crop was alfalfa, he when out to plow. While plowing his dad came over, and ask what are you doing. "plowing under moisture." His dad replied, "You will kill the ground!. He was so firm, that I quit plowing that morning. That area that he plowed did not produce a crop for three years.

Cold continues in Minnesota, still snow on the ground. Planter is ready but it won't roll before May. 10 Day forecast is 45 or so for highs with rain. Moisture is much needed so I ain't complaining. In Mid-May I will get nervous if we don't have corn in the ground......

Cold and wet in east central Indiana. More rain in the forecast. It looks like it will be May before much corn gets planted. Most farmers can plant their corn in 10 days, so I am not going to get nervous until mid-May.

They are calling for rain and snow here in Southwest Iowa on Wednesday April 10th. We are a week or two away from planting. That would be pretty close to on time for here if mother nature co-operates.

If the snow would melt, we might be able to start.....i am replacing my row cleaners with little snow plows so we should be able to run an LP burner ahead of the row opener to thaw the soil...this will also help to jump start the seed if we can go slow enough to gain some growing degrees. The EPA is concerned about global warming with this technique and the NRCS is afraid we will burn up all the residue on the surface.

In West Central Illinois, guys are mudding in their NH3. I believe, if the weather would cooperate, we will get our corn in by the third week of April. Saying that, if you look at the 25 day forecast, we will not plant corn for sometime unless we mud the corn in like people have done their Nh3.

Snow is still deep on the fields, but our ground is dry so melt will be able to get into the soil.. Weather forecast is for cold until at least April 21. No major melt so far. We are fortunate as Saskatchewan snow is much deeper than ours and they went to winter with very wet soil. Red river valley has deep snow and wet fields from last fall. We could be on the land by second week in May. That is OK if it does not start to rain.Our farm is just west of the Turtle Mountains in Manitoba Canada.{ SW Manitoba} Question--- Where did you farm folks find 400,000,000 bushels of corn that you did not know you had one month ago. When the wind blows from the south I smell a strange aroma. Oh well it makes for cheap food!!!!!!
