    Thanks Verb. The dryland corn is not gonna do much. I am expecting 50 bu. If it does more than that, I will be shocked. We have received 9 inches since we planted corn, but only 2 in the past 7 weeks. And have been at 98-102 degrees for the past 3 weeks. I think I saw a cactus this morning.....

    Well Kevin I consider us good friends , so friends tell each other the truth , right ? So here go's !

    All i can really say is it look's like you have been to the db 51 school of sh1tty farming !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Let's talk cotton , it looks like has some kind of defficiecy , I mean man it jumps right out at you and this is comeing from somebody that hasn't even raise'd it !!

    As far as the corn , I really have to wonder if you really went to corn college last year ! If you really did go , Then I have to wonder what the he11 did they teach you ???????????????? It sure wasn't anything on corn , thats for sure .

    I would would HIGHY reccomend geting a NEW agronomist ! For you ole buddy , no charge , Ken

    Kevin,

    I would give anything to have cotton looking that good. I am on 40" rows and preirrigated every row. Two weeks after planting had to water every row agian to help get a decent stand. Check it last night and the top 6 to 8" is bone dry. Alot of the plants that came up from the second watering are not rooted deep enought to reach moister. We have had 0" of moister in 6 months.

    Thanks Uncle Cracker.

    See Ken? Bite me, my cotton looks good to a COTTON FARMER.

    I was able to get a good stand. I planted later than I would have liked to....I prefer to plant around the 20th of April, but the temps were too cold. I Started the water Sunday and got it watered out Wednesday. The cotton wasnt stressing, but this is a fairly heavy clay soil, and if it gets too dry it will crack. And with furrow irrigation, it will take too long to "fill the cracks" and get the water out of the other end, and then the cotton will be waterlogged. Therefore, I watered it when the cotton actually didnt need it.

    UC, where in the panhandle are you? I have a buddy south of Lubbock who came from Louisiana, but went to school at TT and married a girl out in Denver City. He farms and works for an ag retailer.



    O, and whoever decided ECI shouldnt be in the a-hole club, please reconsider. There HAS to be room for him. He is certainly qualified!

    Kevin, crops look good! That first ear of corn,is the size they shoot for here in Ioway north of I-80, instead of planting 20K for larger or multiple ears on a stalk, they plant 44000 for nubbins. LMAO! John

    Ken - I did not know db was educating farmers on raising corn, does each of his students get to dig a root pit? LMAO! John
