I am just wondering what is the planting progress in your area?? Here in the northern part of western IL. corn is 95% planted and soybean are 50% maybe planted. Some are all done and some have corn in and not planted a bean. I have 2% of my beans left to plant. It sure has been an interesting spring !!!! We had a frost a couple of nights ago and damaged some of our corn planted April 19 and 21. What is happening with you guys?

Here in Central NY, we are real lucky. The uncles are on the homestrech. Would have been done, a little over 400A of oats, corn, and beans, but decided to plow up another 10A hayfield for corn. Had some hard rain friday and sat, but should dry out enough tomarrow to get it seeded. A neighbor has a 5A field that he wants them to seed down alfalfa and oat cover crop, so they need to do that, and then on to cutting hay.

Central Iowa, corn all but done, beans being run hard, we finished two days ago, and imagine most will be done in a few days. Mike

Still cool but barley is done and some finally poking out after 2 weeks. Started wheat Friday morning before branding and have about 150 acres in so far with about 200 to go. No sunflowers or corn in yet. Ground temp is still in the 40s. Some have planted corn so we will see how that turns out. I'm in western ND 40 miles north of Dickinson. Went 30 miles west of Minot for wheat seed on Wednesday and wasn't hardly a wheel turned on the way up and you couldn't drive 5 miles without seeing a tractor in the field on the way back. Might actually see some 70s this week. Froze hard last Sunday night and the next few nights froze but not as hard. Dug some rocks and found frost 2 and a half feet down in hay ground about a foot thick.

Here in northern IL, I'll say 70% corn is in, 20% on beans. I've got 200 acres of corn to go with about 200 or so spiking through and no beans planted. 3.5 inches here in the last week

Paul, being straight east on the opposite side of the state from you, it is way less than that here. We just had 6 +/- inches of rain since last sunday alone. Some places had that much in just 2 days. Maybe half of corn is planted and there are no beans anywhere that I have heard of. Maybe wednesday if it's in the 80s the next couple days and we miss this next chance of rain tues I might be able to plant corn in the ground I had worked last sunday before the rain.

Wow I expected to hear that from JW but didn't realize you guys to the East were that wet!! We have had showers to slow us up but my tile outlets are just plain NOT running.We will have to have timely showers to keep us going through the summer. Crazy how different things can be not too far away.

There is no corn emerged yet here in SW MN and I would say our planting progress is similar to yours. But in the East and North parts of MN very little has been done, just to wet. Rod.

Today's Featured Article - Restoration Story: 1929 McCormick-Deering 10-20 - by Randal Simmon. On July 4th 1998 my dad and I was sitting on the front porch when he said that he was going to sell his two 10-20's to a junk man. He said that the junk man was going to give him $500 for both of them but he hadn't received the money for them yet. So I went into the house and wrote him a check for $500 and bought them myself and said now they are mine. He had bought them about five years before thinking that he was going to restore them himself. After five years sitting in the barn, he changed h ... [Read Article]
