Corn is planted and almost poking through already. Winter barley trial is interesting as it is short but is heading out very well already. Weighing my options on which herbicide to post on my non gmo corn. Yes all my corn is conventional and some is even open pollinated. No triple dipple or quad stacks of hundred dollar bills for my seed bill. I also can proudly say Monsanto(monsatan) has not gotten a penny from me yet. It is definitely not the easy way to go choosing non gmo. I also…Continue

To plant or not to plant today... with time ticking away, lots of rain and cold temps in the forecast it's hard to know what's best. Guess for now I don't have to choose myself :) Good luck farmers!

Just a reminder to all members, that I now have more than 1250 workshop and operator manuals and parts lists for all sorts of farming equipment and if you're stuck for a bit of information from any of them, just ask. I'm happy to send members up to 4 pages from any manual I have and hope it gets you out of a fix.

A guy I know, who buys a lot of corn, stated a couple of weeks ago that the last three years have turned good disciplined marketers into bad marketers. He's right in the sense that in the last three years any forward sale has been a bad one. I agree with him that selling grain should be about risk control and not about dollar maximization. Those that can make the jump are better marketers and sleep better. The business school people would say which do you want... two identical…Continue
Ive been posting on this sight since just before we planted our first crop. ime sure slips by quickly. After last years disaster lets hope for a better year in 2013.
The biggest changes for this year are going to be in acres. We were able to buy an adjacent farm a few weeks ago that will add 110 acres. I then got on the phone and finally took the leap to call on some other adjacent land that would make sense to try and buy. Its regular topic on how to get on more…Continue

Interesting news from the USDA..
Last week, the Department hosted several members of the (OECD) at USDA headquarters in Washington to highlight the findings of a new report, Promoting Growth in All Regions, that says investments in rural places are vital for aggregate national economic growth and in many cases, such investments have found that rural regions have, on average, enjoyed faster growth than urban…Continue
