First Day of Spring Sampling Season
I worked near Litchfield today. I checked soil moisture down to 40 inches. Soil is moist but not saturated. Tile are just dribbling or not running at all. Tile removes excess water, so the dribbling tile tell me that moisture is just about right. The surface was starting to dry out, but in depressions and water courses, it was fairly wet. So far it looks like we are off to a good start. It is interesting that last year at this time, lot of field work was underway and there was some corn planted.
