Did the 2009 harvest change your spring plans?

Most Midwest growers were glad to see the 2009 harvest end (unless they still have snow-covered corn in the fields). But, the late harvest and wet weather kept many from getting their planned fall fertilizer applications and tillage finished. 
 
Since they can’t predict spring weather, some growers are changing their 2010 planting plans. Corn acres may be down if there isn’t enough time to fertilize, and more soybeans may be planted. Other growers may just choose different maturities for corn or soybeans. 

So what about you? Did a late harvest prevent you from finishing fall fieldwork? What are your plans – and back-up plans – for this spring?
