Wheat, Wet, Planting Progress
I worked in St. Charles County Missouri today. Wheat is heading and pollinating. Not looking great any more, but still OK. Wet parts of fields were not dry as a result of last weekend's rain. We had to go around a few wet spots but still got everything sampled. We sampled all corn ground today. It was V2 to 4 depending on planting date. It looked good. Only a few plants were gnarly looking fro the freeze. No insects. I would judge corn planting in that area to be about 75% done. Lots of people are finished, but some of the slow guys have a bit to go.
