Spring Planting Decisions in Nebraska

We’ve been pretty productive since last fall. We went hard preparing the fields, and we started planting at a reasonable time — around April 15. I wasn’t in a hurry, because we were working on our planter and waiting for the right field conditions. For a while, our fields were nice and moist in some areas, but for the most part, we were plenty dry. We had snow on the first week of February — about 15 inches — and we barely had a thing since, so had about two months with negligible moisture. It’s very unusual.
