Planting in 2016 will be something hard to forget. The season was plagued with an excessive amount of precipitation that left getting into the fields very challenging. Our planting season lasted nearly 2 months this year, more than double the normal amount of time for us to plant our crop. With the large amounts of precip we also have a fully charged soil profile which will prove very valuable if the hot and dry forecast continues like it has been through mid June.
New for this year was our seed treater. We used this system to be able to treat our soybean seed with inoculant, fungicide, and insecticide to help with emergence, nodulation, and vigor as the plants come out of the ground. It proved especially important with a wet spring like we had!
