I worked east of Brighton today. There was one small field of corn that needed to be harvested. I saw lots of deer stands, but no bow hunters. Soil was moist. Not sure how much rain fell, but it was enough for now. Wheat is looking good in the area. Tillage seems to be done for now. The main field activity was spreading fertilizer and lime. I think some may be waiting to do it after applying nitrogen. Soil Temperature was 50 degrees at 10AM. The state wide map is still showing soil temperatures over 60 degrees on bare soil. I was checking soybean stubble. Cooler fall-like temperatures may lower the temperature later this week.
