|The rainbow ended right over the |
Pioneer seed boxes!
This morning started out with the sun
and just a breeze. It was a "full crew" day. Besides our two fulltime employees we have three spring and fall parttime helpers. Rollie is our neighbor, landlord and ace soil finisher operator. Chuck retired from the co-op a couple of years
|Or maybe it ended in the corn field.|
I snuck out of the seed warehouse today and made a seed delivery. I hadn't been off the farm since Monday and wanted to see what was happening in the country. Wow! There is a lot of corn in the ground especially considering that no one really got started planting around here until Monday. Tonight Joe and I were going through inventories and looking at customers needs and we came to the conclusion that our area is at least 40% planted.
|This is our soybean planter. In a typical year (a phrase I use very lightly)|
we have one planter on corn and one on soybeans. Because of the late
start to planting we are using both planters to get the corn planted.
|This is a seed tender. We deliver bulk corn and soybean seed to |
our customers with these. By using bulk seed, customers eliminate LOTS
of paper bags. Bulk seed is great for handling and for the environoment.
