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.
