The past week was a roller coaster with 80-degree temperatures and near-freezing conditions in a matter of days. A few places were dry enough for limited anhydrous ammonia applications prior to the last rain, but planting has not started in the area. There is concern about wheat that is jointing being damaged by cold temperatures. Winter annuals and cover crops are noticeable and will provide ideal egg-laying conditions for black cutworm moths that moved into the area with passing storms.
