      • Happy 4th to you, too. When driving back from Lynden yesterday, I took a road that follows the river. 2 dairymen families dominate that area, Van Berkums and Vandehoefs, and the corn is all consistent; 3 to 5 ft. tall, and the darkest green from one end to the other. Their 4th cutting was about a foot tall, with 2/3 big guns going to a field. These are good dairymen, and they compete. The grasses need the water, but the corn has been putting down roots for 8 weeks, and unless you have a gravel bar under it, it will do okay.Weather Chick doesn't give any 80 degree weather for 2 weeks, with clouds most of that time. Our Governor declared a drought a month ago, which made everybody irrigating out of the river that have interruptible water rights quit sprinkling, so all is not well all over.

          • So your corn might be knee high to me then Duke .LOL . Hows the beets ? Happy 4th !!

            • Some early planted corn is over knee high [waist high for the vertically challenged] and looking good. But about 2 feet shorter than average.

              Way too much corn is knee high to a year old baby. Fields are still too wet to spray or knife unless really dry land.

              Beans mostly suck some may be about 6 inches tall. really no beans sprayed yet. another rain event over the 4th and the bean fields will look like PP ground

              • Corn waist high here where it's good. Beans are short. We have had some heat here but not a lot of sunshine. 2012 we were on edge of major drought area but lots of sunshine best crop year ever for us. Then Percy set Canada on fire in 2014 smoke blocked out our sunshine to a dull haze all summer our crops suffered plenty of heat and rain no sun. This year plenty of rain not alot of heat and limited sunshine. Get your yields in before the crop insurance companies run out money.

                    • Where we live, 3 inches today, south farm, 4 plus. Last weekend, 1.9 inches. Water is now running overland. We need a month of warm, sunny weather. A lot of soybeans havn't had anything sprayed on them except for a pre. A lot of prevented plant acres around our area, especially land that is close to a river.

                            I came across this today: you may have to go to the site and then choose the article...cover crop for forage etc...

                              This is day 1 of the Kansas Wheat Harvest Reports, brought to you by the Kansas Wheat Commission, Kansas Association of Wheat Growers and the Kansas Grain and Feed Association.

                              Harvest got off to a slow, labored start in south central Kansas over the weekend. The normal excitement and anticipation for wheat harvest can hardly be found in the area, as farmers who are normally finished by late June hop into their combines to face the muddy, dreary conditions for the first time this year. Farmers, who are not typically folks who complain about rain, need some hot, dry weather to really get combines rolling.
                              According to USDA/NASS for the week ending June 23, winter wheat condition rated 4 percent very poor, 12 poor, 28 fair, 43 good and 13 excellent. Winter wheat coloring was 92 percent, behind 97 last year. Mature was 47 percent, well behind 82 last year. Harvested was 5 percent, well behind 48 last year and 36 for the five-year average.
                              Mike Snell, manager of the Farmers Coop Equity Co., in Medicine Lodge, reported that his location took in their first load on the 18th, but have only had three dry days since for harvesting. His area, which would have normally finished their harvest this week, is only around five to ten percent harvested. The area received more rain over the weekend which halted progress. It's too early in the harvest to get a good feel for yields, but test weights (until yesterday) were hanging at about 62 pounds per bushel. Snell estimates the most recent rains may lower that average by about a pound.
                              Scott Van Allen, a farmer near Clearwater, reported very similar conditions in his area. So far his family, which is normally completely done with harvest at this point, has only harvested around 250 acres. He estimates that with perfect harvesting conditions, he would need around ten days to wrap up. The one field the Van Allens completed yielded in the mid 40 bushels per acre, and he was pleasantly surprised with test weights ranging from 59-61.5 pounds per bushel.
                              "Everyone's got bills to pay, and we have neighbors who are still trying to get milo and soybeans in. The jobs are starting to stack up around here," said Van Allen. "We were fortunate to escape most of the hail over the weekend, but the longer our wheat sits out there, the more vulnerable it is to Mother Nature's mood swings."

                              • There are a lot of people around here who will take advantage of this program.

                                Its a good idea [I guess?]

                                It will promote cover crops being planted. And will provide a good supply of extra feed for livestock farmers.

                                Around here most hay fields died off so extra corn acres were planted. It may be useful to farmers who can use this extra payment and grow forage crops.

                                Double dipping?
