The rains we had last week sure did help the crops, but now we are at the point where we need more. I started to see a lot of tassels this week on corn that is not very tall. Luckily wheat harvest yields were very good, and a few guys are going to try some double crop beans, but there is not much rain in sight for the next 10 days. This week our shop was as busy as it was in March. Assembling Salford tools and working on a lot of cover crop seeding projects for fall. This is typically our slower time as far as in field service and on demand service, but we work really hard this time of year to do improvement projects to make December–June easier. We are lining up several cover crop seeder installation trips for this summer. If you need put onto the list, be sure to reach out!
