Snow on the stalks

Posted by Russel Higgins -

Surprise! Mid April and farmers awoke to a fresh coat of snow on many northern Illinois fields. Fortunately the white covering was short lived. On Monday NASS released the planting progress report. As expected, very little corn is planted in the state. Illinois has 1 % of the corn crop planted as of April 13th. However, as we learned last year, a lot of corn can go in the ground very quickly when conditions improve.

The report is available on the USDA-NASS web site
