Macoupin, Jersey, Greene

Soil Moisture is dropping, but seepy areas are still very wet. I noticed some soybean stubble that had heaved. I know dead plants heave easier than live, but it still prompts me to remind everyone to check on wheat and alfalfa to see how badly is has heaved. FYI I sampled mostly soybean and corn stubble. There was still frost in random places. Nothing was tilled. I samples one field of alfalfa and it looked ok. It has not been warm enough yet to break dormancy. Rain is on the way.Check Spelling

frost is out of the ground and wheat and canola have broke and are growing. Got to sample some but have yet to get to the field. Tile ground dry enough to drive backhoe out on.
