Jevon Rockwell, June 13

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We got corn planting finished a week before the end of May. Then we finished soybeans three days later. We went right from planting the first crop soybeans to planting the interseeded beans on Memorial Day weekend. We finished planting those the third or fourth of June.We are probably looking at a July 4 wheat harvest — maybe the end of June. I have seen a couple fields starting to turn. We are caught in a dry spell and it is pushing the wheat.We do need a rain. All of our corn is sidedressed and the herbicide is on the corn. We may have to touch up a few things later. We have held off on spraying beans because they are small yet.The crops look good, but we should have waited on planting the early stuff. The later stuff came up perfectly with warmer temperatures. We should have planted everything at the end of May. Some of our early corn looks good but we did replant 10 acres of that early 450 acres.I saw some grubs when it was cold and wet, but I have not seen any insect pressure once things warmed up. There is some rust in the wheat and that may be a concern. I did not see head scab.I have been selling with the higher prices. You have to protect what is there in case we start seeing the markets tumble. We are 75% sold on soybeans and we are holding off a little on corn. We have not sold much because I think there is potential to rally with weather scares. We think what we have is a good price on soybeans, but there may be more surprises.last_img
