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.
