Not much rain. Corn stalks dried up. Soybeans shrinking.
It's a year of change, frustration and loss of crops. Farmer's are considering lots of options on how to handle harvest. Some are silage chopping, harvesting much earlier, and hoping for a decent yield. What does next year bring? How does tiling fit into this picture in drought conditions? Perhaps you are reconsidering the benefits of no-till acreage to conserve moisture, lower the water table to improve root structure enabling the crops to withstand drought conditions we have been experiencing this year.
