Thanks to good ol’ Mother Nature, planting has been at a standstill. Anywhere from 2 to 2 ½ inches of rain fell over the weekend. Although farmers are eager to get their seed in the ground, there’s no need to hit the panic button yet. It’s only May 9, so we’re still within the window of opportunity for good yields. The forecast for the week includes only a small chance of rain, so we should be going here again soon. We’re about 50% done with corn and only a few farmers have put beans in the ground. As we know, it’s better to keep the seed in the bag than it is to plant in unfit conditions.
