A quick stop at the field today showed that field conditions are starting to dry out.  The soil is looking good. When we walked out on the field, there are areas which are soft enough that you sink in an inch.  A few small areas of the field are starting to dry out enough that the top layer of soil is dry.   As farmers, we are five to six weeks away from planting.  Field conditions look good and we have no concerns about the soil at this time.

The next few weeks will busy for farmers in the Marion, Ohio area.  This is the time of year farmers are:

  • getting seed (corn and soybeans) delivered to their farm or picked up from the seed dealer
  • finalizing nutrient, weed control, and pesticide plans for the field, and
  • preparing tractors, planters and other equipment for the spring season.
