How is planting progress in the U.S. going?
We will be polling members across the U.S. to track how planting progress is going for various crops and sharing the results here on a weekly basis. Thanks to the members who are responding to our polls so that we can provide this detail to the network!
Haven’t turned a wheel in northwest Ohio.
It’s an absolute dust storm in Nebraska. Very serious. Terrible planting conditions.
Too wet. Cannot get in the field in north-central Illinois. Finished planting last year on this date.

Too wet in west central IL also.
Still frost in the ground in East Central South Dakota
To wet in Central Ms more rain coming tomorrow
Haven't stepped in the fields yet due to rain and cold. Gets just about dry enough to start and rains again.
All these tough conditions that we are all reporting are just what the doctor ordered for us farmers! Take insurance at 85% revenue which is at profitable levels and pray that we don’t raise a crop so we take even more bushels off the market! Because farmers are price takers and not price makers and we will need even more $ per bushel next year to absorb the prices that these retailers are looking at throwing at us farmers next year! Because there will certainly be a shortage of Fertlizer!
