“Wow” it is wet. It is amazing how this has been going on all spring for many farmers, but it is still the number one conversation topic. I am providing a link that Ryan Bell (our Seed Specialist in Covington Indiana) forwarded around earlier this month. The article was written the beginning of May, but it is still very relevant at this time. Be sure to read this article before you switch maturities and risk giving up yield. Every circumstance has its own little twist, but in general it can cost you more yield/profit switching later in the season than it does during normal planting dates.

If anyone has good information that supports or challenges this, I would like to receive the feedback.
