Ready to plant?
Yesterday I saw 2 or 3 planters out of the shed. Are these guys ready to plant? I hope not, although a few years ago a coating technology was available that would allow corn to be planted very early and germinate 3 to 4 weeks later. I suppose they were out just to make sure they are ready to plant. Precision Planting has a checklist of things to do before planting. I cannot write a checklist this well, so click on the link. Be sure and check out the video too. If the weather holds, April 1 will come around fast. I suspect some will push that date a little bit too if soils are warm.
