February Crop Comments

Feb 28, 2011

Use this link to send us your comments about the crops in your local area. Be sure to send us your photos and videos! Comments will be edited for brevity and clarity. (Please keep your comments crop-related.)


Here's a sampling of what some folks are saying
:  

  • 2/28 - Langlade, Wis.: Winter keeps hanging on with zero or below the last two mornings. About 8 inches of snow and a lot of ice covering the wheat and alfalfa.
     
  • 2/28 - United States: Making the rounds paying rent! Only had 50% of my landlords ask for more money! I finally had to explain that we need to discuss this before September 1.The law was created to protect both the landlord and tenant. I had to tell them that I had already made some sales at  a lower price earlier  to cover my costs. They all hear  $6 + corn and think that you can sell 200 bushel/acre.They don't think of all the risks that we take.

  • 2/25 - Marshall, Minn.: 75.6 inches so far; its been a doozy.
     
  • 2/25 - Dickey County, N.D.: Lots of snow!!! It’s going to be a wet spring and a greater challenge to get corn acres in. Soybeans are looking to consume most of the acres again.

     
  • 2/25 - Northern Montana: This latest round of profit taking and acreage prognostication should show most wheat farmers that good prices are fleeting, and that there are more stable commodities available. In northern Montana we have now available peas, lentils, canola, and malt barley all of which carry lower input costs and significantly fewer discounts when delivered to the elevators. I would not count on an increased acreage of wheat around here because of the alternatives. We got killed on discounts last year and do not wish a repeat this year. Again, other commodities carry equally desirable base prices without large discounts or high nitrogen costs.

  • 2/24 - Texas: The state’s weather did a one-eighty in the last week, going from abnormally cold to unseasonably warm, noted Texas AgriLife Extension Service personnel. However, the reversal was a mixed blessing. With few exceptions, many counties reported the warm, windy weather acerbated already short to very short soil-moisture levels. Though the previous hard freezes damaged crops, including wheat, oats and some vegetables, the ruling agricultural factor continued to be lack of rain.

  • 2/23 - Crittenden County, Ky.: Sold our entire (except for some we kept for feed) 2010 corn crop today for $7.05 per bushel. Would feel really good if I didn't expect $4.50 gas and $5.00 diesel.
     
  • 2/23 - North central Illinois: Winter just wouldn't go away!  Had a good warming week last week, but winter has returned this week. After last week being in the upper 50's and melting away most of the snow (except where we piled it up), temps returned back to the 20's this morning with a dusting of snow.  I did have a chance to drive past my wheat fields last week, and was pleasantly surprised.  Seems that most of the wheat made it through the winter so far.  It had a snow cover on it most of the time.  The this past Sunday and Monday, got hit with rain, and some ponding.  Water was standing in some spots.  The green tint of spring was starting to show up, but now has gone back to being white as snow continues to fall, with more predicted for later in the week, along with colder temps, into the single digits! .

  • 2/23 - Chickasaw, Iowa: More corn, fewer beans.
     
  • 2/23 - Audrain County, Mo.: Corn fields in mo are covered with water so much water ducks are hanging out on them!

  • 2/23 - Hermosillo to Culiacan, Mexico: I am from Wisconsin, but recently had the pleasure of driving through mexico. Early in the month they had a hard freeze, supposedly one of the coldest days recorded,  with that they had almost all their corn froze,  some was toseeling, and others was knee high. I am wondering what effect, if any this will have on the corn price. We drove for 1,000 miles seeing dead corn!!!
     
  • 2/23 - Holmes County, Miss.: Cotton and corn acres will be about equal; trying to get back to long term rotation. Soybeans and wheat on rest of acres not suitable for cotton or corn.

     
  • 2/22 - Madison Parish, La.: Corn planting will start next week weather permitting. Corn and cotton will take away soybean acres in LA, MS and AR.
     
  • 2/23 - Union County, N.C.: We start planting corn around the last of March throughout April in the Piedmont section of NC. La Niña has push us into what is defined as a severe drought, one we have been dealing with since November, 2010. The surface moisture is somewhat adequate for germination, but below that it is extremely dry. Not a good scenario for beginning a corn crop.

  • 2/22 - Caddo Parish, La.: Acreage battle between corn and soybeans. Few growers will make small increases in cotton. We started planting corn on Saturday. 400 acres completed and 500 to go. Look to plant 900 acres of soybeans as well. Wheat is starting to take off with the warm weather this past weekend.

  • 2/22 - Northeast Colorado: We finally received from 4-6" of snow last week. We have been in the deep freeze, as low as -18 degrees for the last couple weeks without much snow cover and now are having days in the 60's. Welcome to Colorado weather. There is wheat is all over the board.  Some has been setting in dry dirt since last fall, some has sprouted and is not through the surface and an occasional field looks good. Overall the most conditions range from poor to fair. We will soon see if the cold weather affected stands as it warms up.  We have some deep moisture but could use some more on top this spring to get it started.  Time and weather will tell.

  • 2/16 - Kent, Texas: This is cotton country with a good bit of wheat and some sorghum. As someone said; This year cotton will be planted in the cracks of the sidewalks. We will start strip-till operations around March 10th.
     
  • 2/22 - West Salem, Ohio: After several days of sunshine I can finally see our winter wheat fields for the first time since January 7th!  As you can see from the picture below it is stooled (bushed) out nicely and still has good color.

  • 2/22 - Buffalo County, Neb.: Last week took care of the last of the snow melt and this a.m. we wake up to 10 degrees.  Winter is not giving up early this year!  We have all of our ground ready to plant because of the early harvest and subsequent nice fall weather to get all of our fall field work done. We will stay with our usual rotation even though corn works out to more dollars after expenses. Don’t forget all the soybean credits when penciling out which may make you more money. The soybeans in picture last summer yielded close to 90 bu.  Best beans we ever raised but our corn was a little disappointing. Have a safe spring when it gets here!

  • 2/22 - Northwest North Dakota: Way too much rain in the 2010 crop year. Had preventive plant acres and lots of drowned out. Most of our durum acres had and inch or two of rain at harvest time before we could get to it. our early crops (peas and lentils) were pretty average with lentils being all number ones.

  • 2/22 - Queen Anne's, Md.: Our wheat is dormant and needs nitrogen soon for tillering. (Read more wheat-related comments at AgWeb's www.VirtualWheatTour.com)
     
  • 2/22 - Story, Iowa: 2010 soybeans had SDS -- bad 30 bu/acre. 2010 corn was excellent 200 bu./acre.

  • 2/18 - Scott County, Kan.:What is Snow? 1000's of acres of unemerged wheat, no significant moisture since July. Some wheat is decent, most is the new "a patchy" variety, (a patch here, and patch there. (Read more wheat-related comments at AgWeb's www.VirtualWheatTour.com)
     
  • 2/18 - East central Iowa: Nearly all the 20-30 inches of snow we received after the first of year is gone since the warm-up that started Sunday. Just like the melt before the first of the year, it was nice and slow. Talking to a couple other farmers around here none ( as of right now) are talking shifting acre  to corn from current corn/bean rotation. Tat could change if corn prices out pace beans, since we don't usually start planting until April 17-24. Mt guys in my area are no-till corn/ bean rotation because of our rolling ground along with the yield kick on corn following beans) and close location to processors and  river terminals(prices are usually comparable).

  • 2/16 - Ransom County, southeast North Dakota:10 days of nice weather has improved the mood here. The snow pack is still from 1-4 foot thick. Some grain moving to town. 5,000 bu of seed wheat for sale but only 500 spoken for. Some soybean varieties and corn hybrids are sold out. The discount for 13% protein HRSW vs. 14% protein is now $1.25. That's a new high.
     
  • 2/16 - Wilbur, Wash.: The Groundhog must have seen his shadow in Eastern Washington.  We are back under a winter-like mix of snow and rain for Valentine's Day.  Temps are colder than they have been for the last month.  Winter Wheat was looking good coming out from under the snow in my area, and all across the east side of the state I think it grew all winter!  

    With prices as they are, a lot of attention is being paid to fungicides and additional N when the time is right.  It's going to be hard to steer away from spring wheat this year with the price.  There are a lot of acres planted to Hard Red Spring Wheats in this area in rotation, so that won't change.

    From the looks of things I will hit the fields around the third week of March. Hope someone gets the shop work finished up first! (Read more wheat-related comments at AgWeb's www.VirtualWheatTour.com)

  • 2/16 - Texas: As temperatures begin to warm up after an extended cold spell, wheat producers in some parts of the state are going to have to make some hard choices, according to a Texas AgriLife Extension Service expert. The record freezing weather caused only cosmetic damage to Rolling Plains wheat and will have little effect on yields,said Dr. Todd Baughman, AgriLife Extension agronomist based in Vernon.

    Many counties in the Rolling Plains haven't had significant rain or snow since October. Without rain soon, those who grow winter wheat for grazing and grain will have some hard choices to make, according to Texas AgriLife Extension Service experts.

  • 2/16 - Southwest Ohio: We have been though freezes and thaws on our soft red winter wheat. Wheat can take so much but how much do we tolerate in today's high market prices for all commodities? I know we can tolerate a lot and I will fill my wheat contracts but how much damage can you tolerate? It all comes down to crop history, when you planted what you variety you planted and how it looks today. Mine doesn't look as good as one of my neighbors.

    So when do I decide to keep my wheat and not as a double crop and when do I toprdress it? Right now. You can read all the research and make your own decision. I want to keep what  looks good enough to topdress.

    I think we missed a good window last week when the ground was frozen with a little snow to get the N on and let it melt down into the wheat.

    Wheat has always been a third sister here, not even second, so it is hard to copy the neighbors on this one. You have to do it all by yourself. (Read more wheat-related comments at AgWeb's www.VirtualWheatTour.com)

  • 2/15 - Decatur, Kan.: We have been dry since we planted wheat in Sept. and Oct. Summerfallow wheat up and looks alright CC wheat not as much growth and wheat planted in this years corn stubble will be torn up or sprayed and planted to a spring crop 5-6 inches of snow this last storm. South and west of here some of the wheat hasn't emerged yet. (Read more wheat-related comments at AgWeb's www.VirtualWheatTour.com)

  • 2/14 - Le Sueur, Minn.: I will be planting half my crop to soybeans and half to field corn.

     
  • 2/14 - Jefferson County, N.Y.: Hasn't been above freezing in over 3 weeks with heavy lake effect snow nearly every day. Hope spring is just around the corner. Corn acres in our area will be up. The dairy guys can not afford these corn prices so all will plant extra acres.

  • 2/14 - Miami/Fulton counties, Ind.: We have good snow cover. Guessing 12"-14". We have it piled up in some of the biggest piles we've had in a long time. The question is well we be able to capture at least some of it to get a recharge. We received about 6"-7" in the past week. Crop plans include some corn/corn which is something we've not done a lot of for some time. We also planted about 30 acres of wheat which we plan to spread manure on from a neighbor's hog operation. We've not done that for several years either. We'll head to the corn field anytime after April 10th assuming soils are ready. We have planted soybeans around this time and with good results. (Read more wheat-related comments at AgWeb's www.VirtualWheatTour.com)

  • 2/11 - Sully, S.D.: My crop plans are about the same as last year, I just don't vary my rotations nor do most people around here. We've had a lot of snow this winter. Some very cold temps but snow should have protected winter wheat. (Read more wheat-related comments at AgWeb's www.VirtualWheatTour.com)
     
  • 2/11 - Red Lake / Pennington, Minn.: Expanding corn acreage by 70%, reducing soybean acreage by 35%, and planting no wheat in 2011. (Read more wheat-related comments at AgWeb's www.VirtualWheatTour.com)

     
  • 2/11 - Holmes County, Miss.: Cotton and corn acres will be about equal; trying to get back to long term rotation. Soybeans and wheat on rest of acres not suitable for cotton or corn. (Read more wheat-related comments at AgWeb's www.VirtualWheatTour.com)

  • 2/11 - Coffey County, Kan.: Crop mix for 2011 will be 40% Corn & 60% soybeans, about normal for us. No Milo & No Wheat. Total snowfall approx. 20" or "Way Too Much" for this area. The winter started out very nice & has been cold & snowy since January. Working on equipment now getting ready for spring rush.

     
  • 2/11 - Cavalier County, N.D.: It has been well below zero  all week up here in the border land and cropping plans are changing with the markets.  For now its more wheat than usual with flax and beans losing.

     
  • 2/11 - Arkansas: Winter wheat looks really good. maybe later than norm. Moisture is good but a little dry for this time of the year. Less than 2 inches of snow for the year, about normal.

  • 2/10 - Allen County, Kan.: 2011 plans are on hold due to the intense wintry weather! Just received and additional eight inches of powdery snow on top of a previous accumulation of seventeen inches from a week ago. Having to deal with four to six foot drifts that are anywhere from six to forty feet wide has made for intense work to gain access to hay to feed the cattle! Winter wheat is taking a pounding and is not looking good. Seems winter kill is taking over with the severe sub-zero temperatures of late. 

  • 2/9 - Texas: Freezing cold hammered agricultural operations, halting fieldwork, damaging crops and stressing livestock, according to Texas AgriLife Extension Service personnel. Though there were some positive aspects noted — death of overwintering insects and moisture from melt-off — most reports the winter storm’s affects on agriculture were negative.

  • 2/7 - East central Iowa: Still digging out. I do have snow for sale (get it while it lasts!). We need to call our congressmen about the 10 year program! My Senator told a couple guys and I that he has not heard of any problems about this issue. I am all for partial farm signups to get marginal parts of a farm out of production because they aren't usually profitable. It seems the program went from a conservation program to a wildlife habitat program!

  • 2/4 - Southeast North Dakota: I have to agree with a couple of comments made on here earlier. In almost every year the earliest we ever get in is Good Friday. I cannot explain that but our planting records back it up. I also wonder why more acres are being accepted into CRP maybe only 10-20% of any farm should be eligible. I am also not a big fan of the CSP program.

  • 2/3 - Morill, Kan.: Snow would be good cause it would insulate the crops, but poor fall stand combined with bare fields and bitter cold have me a little concerned, although concern is unwarranted cause we won’t know for sure until spring.

     
  • 2/3 - Tenterfield, New South Wales: It’s very hot here in Australia. Perhaps the largest cyclone ever to hit Northern Queensland will happen later today. Cattle prices are quite good at present let’s hope it lasts till after all the 8/9 month old calves are sold off their mums over the next few months. Most of Australia is having a great season ( apart from the south west part of Western Australia) Despite the floods that are continuing in parts it will mean good times later on down the track. On the crop side of things. Grain producers were looking forward to their first good harvest after up to 10 years of below average rainfall. Some areas that escaped the brunt of the flooding will still have a result ...better than many years. I don't live in a cropping area but use grain to finish a few steers and prepare registered beef cattle ( Brahmans and South Devon and a commercial herd of Herefords and their crosses.). Grain prices as well as lucerne hay will be quite expensive as Winter approaches in a few months.

     
  • 2/3 - Southwest Kansas: It was a -32 last night and of course this brought on calving, they spent most of the night making sure no calves hit the ground outdoors or they would die. Calves born during the day had to be moved indoors as well cause nose and ears were starting to show signs of frostbite. Never experienced cold quite like this. We are in SW Kansas. Wish the storm had more moisture because the wheat needs it bad!!

     
  • 2/3 - Jackson County, Iowa: WE MADE IT! 10-12 inches snow along with 30-50 MPH winds. I know I am not alone, the winds and snow started Feb. 1 after noon and quit at noon Wed. Everyone is saying we need more acres for crop production, then why did our government have a 10 year signup this fall taking whole farms out of production? There bids were a lot higher than what some producers were paying, why are we having to compete with the government to farm when they are broke? Any one else have the same problem in their area?

  • 2/3 - McLeod County, Minn.: Snow, snow, and more snow on the way. Most of the state has been blanketed by several feet. The national weather service is predicting major flood for the entire state with the possibility of epic flooding in some areas. Several farmers that I have talked to in the area are getting extremely worried that there will be major planting delays this spring. I am one of them. The weatherman said the other night that our snowpack and what is expected to fall yet has the equivalent of 8-12 inches of water. This just means that we won’t be able to ship any grain cause all the rivers will be closed to barge traffic. It just doesn’t look good from here
     
     
  • 2/3 - Southwest Kansas.: Once again we miss out on precipitation. It is extremely cold though. It was -8 again this morning. We have no snow cover at all. This is the third spell of cold weather like this. With no snow cover on our wheat. We did get all our wheat up this fall, but we've received no measurable precipitation since emerging in Sept.. I hope the weather pattern hurries and changes or it could be a very dirty spring out here when the winds really get to howling. Most of western Kansas, eastern Colorado, western Oklahoma didn't get their wheat up this fall. There are lots of fields with not wheat up or very spotty stands. There will be thousands of acres of wheat destroyed this spring and seeded to milo if we get some spring moisture. The wheat in this area is the worst I've seen it out here for some time. I'm afraid that with all the CRP getting destroyed out here we are setting ourselves up for some dirty times again. I hope I'm wrong.

     
  • 2/3 - Audrain County, Mo.: Here are some photos from north-central Missouri. Snow totaled near 20 inches. (Photos by Farm Journal's Lindsey Benne and Anna-Lisa Giannini.)

  • 2/2 - Chickasaw, Iowa: I think it has been a long winter already. Blowing and snowing now with temps falling. Will keep rotation the same 50-50. Just remember Easter is as late as it can get. Last year just the opposite, see what happens.

     
  • 2/2 - Jackson County, Iowa: Last fall seems so far away when comparing pics. From Feb. 1 2011 snow storm. A lot of fertilizer has been applied, including NH3. There is starting to be some concern about 2011 hay supply with corn/bean prices going up. With the higher rent and dollars/acre return on grains, it is hard to seed alfalfa down when there isn't much return the first year. This winter is proving a challenge for the third year in a row. Processors are sometimes having quick ship bids to get corn. Taking care of cattle is requiring a lot of bedding along with some extra feed to maintain condition. We will survive, I hope!!!

  • 2/2 - Clay County, Kansas: The primary crops in our county are wheat, corn, soybeans and milo. Wheat is taking a back sit to soybeans and corn. My planting plans have not changed much since I am enrolled in CSP with the government and required to plant a third of my acres to cover crops. My rotation consists of wheat, cover crop, milo and soybeans. We have received only 3 to 4 inches of snow but 40+ mile wind today. The wheat has been covered the last two snow storms we have had to protect from the cold but not this present storm. The temperature is to below 0 tonight with very little snow cover. Most of my wheat did not emerge out of the ground due to lack of moisture. For our area with prices where they are you see more corn and soybeans again planted in our county with wheat taking a back seat.

  • 2/2 - Texas: Wet, mild weather improved winter pastures during the last week of January, according to Texas AgriLife Extension Service personnel. The winter storm that struck Feb. 1 brought more moisture, which should benefit crops, but the extreme cold was expected to further stress livestock.

 

  • 2/1 - Callaway County, Mo.: Blizzard conditions have descended upon east central Missouri. More than 23 inches of snow are on the way.

  • 2/1 - Cedar County, Neb.: Will plant 100% corn on corn. Have about 20 inches snow some has melted down to about 10 inches. The ethanol lines are 3-4 hours at times. Will plant all corn for 2011.Winter has been very cold hard on livestock.

     
  • 2/1 - Jackson County, Iowa: Here, it is very diverse in how crop decisions are made. There are a lot of stock cows, quit a few dairy farms, some hog buildings, a lot of small farms along with some larger grain farms. So when you ask about cropping plans for 2011, you can get 100 different answers. A majority of our ground is highly erodible. I personally am almost 100% no-till, using a corn-bean rotation with a few corn on corn acres. Corn on corn only works for me on real good dirt, mainly on ridge tops (which is only a limited number of acres).

  • 2/1 - Fulton, Miami counties, Indiana: Wheat looked pretty tough before the snow. It got very little (if any) growth before it went into dormancy. Prep for next year's corn and soybeans are ahead of usual. K is all on and we have been hauling manure out of a neighbor's hog building for sometime now.  Tillage is ahead of usual too. We will be have some corn/corn on some of better dirt. The market seems to say, "plant corn!" Enjoyed a day with a couple of friends at the Ft. Wayne Show. I always seem to find a bargain. This year was no exception. (Read more wheat-related comments at AgWeb's www.VirtualWheatTour.com)

     
  • 2/1 - Umatilla County, Oregon: White wheat crop looking good. It was planted early in September. Some spring wheat to be planted dns. We are a all wheat farm. So 2011 will be the same. (Read more wheat-related comments at AgWeb's www.VirtualWheatTour.com)
