Farming Progress

18 May

Well, the weather finally dried up and warmed up enough for farmers to get in the fields and work. This is one of our farmers planting a cotton variety trial for us. We are planting 12 rows each of 14 different varieties of cotton. we are planting 4 varieties we really like, 4 varieties that are available but we don’t think we really like, and 6 experimental varieties that have not been released yet. If any of the experimental varieties do well, they may be released in the future. This gives us an opportunity to check them out before they become commercially available. We usually plant 4 of these trials every year so they helps us stay on top of the best varieties for our clients. I’ve got my fingers crossed the weather will hold out for one more week, we can make a lot of progress in 7 days. Then I will be hoping for a little rain, in the farming business we are never satisfied with the weather!
