Soil Moisture

So I have spent half the spring telling everyone how good our moisture is in my area.  Today I worked in the Nutwood are west of Jerseyville.  Some of the corn was showing moisture stress.  Tillage, compaction, and planting date all seemed to play a role.  Soil moisture is definitely on the dry side of adequate West of Jerseyville.  I am sure everyone in this area is hoping that the forecast for rain on Sunday is correct.  This is a contrast to the rest of the area.  As recently as Tuesday, I saw someone pull into a field and then leave because it was too wet.
