We know lots of farmers are having a tough summer with the drought. We have had lots of people ask how some of our long-time customers are faring. We received this note via email last week.
"Hi Craig, Are you having a drought out your way? We are short of moisture but with using gypsum and lime on my corn and beans plus cover crops and no-till I am looking at 150 bu. plus of corn and 40 plus soybeans. Our county has been declared a disaster area. Some corn in sandy ground is only 2 ft high, the soybeans on clay knobs died from no moisture. I am glad I am no-tilling."
Thanks, Larry from Michigan, for that update. It’s great to hear that you will be harvesting a crop this year!
