Missouri Farmers Finally in the Fields

May 13, 2011 06:00 PM

Several dry, 90-degree days were welcomed by farmers in central and northeast Missouri. Dust was flying as farmers charged ahead with corn and even some soybean planting.

In central Missouri, farmers are putting full priority on corn planting. Tillage is key this spring for many farmers, including JP Curtis Farms in Laddonia, Mo.
On the next gravel road down 54, Kenny and Bart Roth and their hired hand work ground and plant this mile-long field.
In New London, MO, farmer Tim Flowerree completes the last rounds of his 2,000 corn acres for the year. “The last four days have been much better than the last four weeks,” he says. He and his farming partner have already started planting beans.
