Montgomery and Macoupin Counties Road Trip

I took a road trip today to Raymond, Farmersville, Girard, Carlinville, Shipman, Gillespie and Litchfield. Some fields are very wet, some just kind of wet.  The fields I wanted to sample are too wet.

On the positive side, early corn is tasseling and silking in some areas. Early soybeans are looking ok where they re not drowned.  Uneven stands are the rule.  There is wheat to harvest, but between Vomitoxin and sprouting heads, it might not be worth much.  I know of one producer who destroyed his wheat because of vomitoxin.
