Nebraska: Prioritizing Strategies for the New Season

Current Conditions

Right now we’re overcast and foggy — it’s kind of a miserable day. I’m doing a couple of maintenance things and paperwork, just trying to get ready for the season.

We had a couple big snowstorms roll through a few weeks, but it was pretty typical of our winters — the first one was probably 6 inches, the second one was maybe another 3–4. It was a wet snow, and we’ve had nice weather since so a lot of it’s gone now.

Early Season in Nebraska

I was planning on starting my planting on the 15th of April, but because of the cold, dry conditions I dragged my feet and didn't start until the 21st. In the first three days we weren’t particularly productive, but in the last three days we finally started to hit our stride. Then the weather shut us down again.
