Working in the Chesterfield area today. Land was somewhat rolling, so it was not too wet. I rode through very little water. Soybean stubble had fall applied anhydrous. We heard rumors that corn is being planted in St. Charles County Mo. We will check it out next week.
I also spotted a nice looking Water and Sediment Control Basin (WASCOB). Some call them little dry dams. They provide a stable outlet for small waterways or stabilize small gullies. Most farmers who install them on their own do not build the dam this high. A 3 to 4 foot high dam will function best if you build one yourself.
