We got both seeding units in the field late last week and did about 1,000 acres between the two of them. Got a few issues figured out and made sure everything functioning properly.
The weather is still on the cool side – we have had single digit highs and overnight lows in the -2 to -7 C range. Longer term forecast is for mid teens for daily highs and overnight lows to stay above freezing.
There is still no sign of precipitation in the near to mid range forecast. As early as this is I don’t think anyone would be upset if we had a week of wet weather…..for now the soil moisture is satisfactory and we are putting seeds into moisture and getting a good seedbed.
