Your ground looks very dry now but the slot where your finger is was caused by too WET conditions when the corn was planted. For a runner planter to work well there must be a lot of loose dirt. You did not have that. It appears your ground was worked too wet and planted too wet, causing it all to dry out and turn hard now. Pretty rough conditions to plant into with a runner planter. Mike

I had the field perfect, nice deep good tilth. Then he told me could not get to it yet and it got rain a few times and 2 1/2 weeks later he showed up and put on some pellatized chicken manure and ran his disc real shallow to turn it in then he planted. Next year I'm gonna remove a few trees an put in a bigger gate and plant it myself.

He compacted the ground when it was not right which is shown by the slot cut by the runner. If the tilth was "right" there would be no slot. Mike
