Abstract

The weather was notable again this year. Mild winter temperatures allowed soil absorption of melting snow and early spring rain. The result was a doubling of the subsoil moisture total to 8.9 in. this spring from 4.5 in. last fall. Temperatures warmed in March, and we started fieldwork March 27. Rainfall was light and scattered through the planting season and allowed for timely operations. Corn planting started on April 14 and soybeans on April 26. Some producers in the area were done planting by May 1.
