Anywhere from six-tenths to 1.9 inches of rain Wednesday night (April 17) here. Lots of sun and wind has helped dry things out. Pending no rain Sunday, field work will break loose again early this week. Flood water is still receding, we possibly could plant corn on some higher ground that was previously flooded by the end of this week.

Fields are finally drying out here. Lots of field work starting to go on: Mainly fertilizer application, but a few planters rolling in the area as well. Locally we missed the rain over the weekend and have a few days before the next precip chance. Flood water is moving off better than expected but will still need a drier weather trend to get those acres planted.

The calendar has barely hit April and we have already had a fierce battle with the Missouri River, fighting off the all-time highest recorded level at the Waverly gauge. Our levees held but still took on a lot of water from creeks backing up and spilling over high banks. We have 2,000 acres underwater currently and will take months to pump out. It’s still early and we are determined to try and get a corn crop in, but the lack of fertilizing may turn into a blessing, as many acres may have to be flip flopped to get a crop in.
