Started spraying today. Putting down pre emergent on soy ground. Using 8450 to pull sprayer, 90 percent of the ground is going well. It's the typical spots or crossing ditches that the 4640 would be stuck 10 times.

Finished up with the last of 400 +/- acres of corn for the year today. 

And depending on this weekends weather, possible to start with beans.

L&D sprayer

With the wetness of the fields I was able to get all my soybean pre-emergent down. Maybe try planting some corn and beans today?

Got about half of it in the ground. Just got 2 inches with another half inch tonight it will be a week before anything moves down this way. Corn planted on April 24 just coming there now, neighbor put in soybeans at same time already filling paperwork for replant. If it keeps it up I’ll be looking to put covers on in July when it gets hot and dry.

Had to laughter the other day talking with a nieghbor who spent big money to precision his planter putting new furrow force on his planter, asked him how it worked and he said horrible my monitor keeps alarming saying the soil is to wet and cold. Could’ve found that out by getting out of that cab...

Because of the prevent plant insurance you mean? Very sad isn't it that farmers get paid to not Farm.

Lol. 

We had 32 degrees yesterday and snow almost 3 and 1/2 in in the gauge. With a rainy forecast. This is the first spring I've worried that my new seeded grass might be killed?

Only insurance I'm buying this year is some private hail.  All the rest to hell with it, my balls are feeling big this year haha.   I was just saying if I plant my corn and BW on June 1st or that week it'll still work out just fine.  I got a 'flower trial to plant too but no hurry there either.
