Well we’ve got most of our anhydrous done. A few guys have started planting. Others are probably waiting for the soil to stay at a warmer temp. Right now it’s just kind of a waiting game, getting everything looked over, double-checked and ready to go.

This week it’s dried up enough to get anhydrous put on. We were able to get one field done just before it snowed Sunday morning (April 14). But that’s Missouri weather for you — wait 30 minutes and the weather will change.

Things are staying pretty wet but we’re getting some equipment ready, changing the oil in the tractors, and looking over the planter. Just general maintenance. It’s just been too wet for us to do anything in the field so far, and that’s kind of the same story for a lot of guys around here.
