I worked south of Valmeyer today. There is lots of wheat sowed in the American Bottoms of Monroe County. Most of it was looking good. This is a contrast to the USDA wheat condition report that says it is the worst crop in years. I saw one field of corn to be harvested and a few fields of double crop soybeans that still have green stems. I worked in mud for the first time this fall. I was in a wet area and about a half inch of rain fell through the night. Some of the wheat ground I worked on had just recently been planted and it was rough. Rain will help get it out of the ground.
