Misery loves company and you’re in good company. Supposed to start tomorrow and dump 60+ mm. Just when things were getting nice and not worrying about too much mud. Burning the candle here but progress is slow.

We need heat and sunshine ........... not the liquid kind either.

Hope the forecast is wrong ........... the half inch called for two weeks ago turned into over two though.

Good luck monsoon season is upon us it seems🍀 Reply With Quote

    If it makes you feel better I'm in the same boat, still got a bit to combine and only got 25% of my seeding done, and yes calling for 4 days here also, got 3/10 last night already. Overall area ahead of me, slow as usual! Reply With Quote
    May 20, 2020 | 09:00 6 Rain is my nemesis! I hate it. Right now we are able to seed but the ground is so wet any rain would set us back close to June. I know you need a little rain in the growing season but it’s been so many years since I actually hoped for rain.
    You guys that are getting to much I know the feeling. I hope you miss it,
    Good luck! Reply With Quote

    All we get is wind in the Sahara Slum of the Ghetto.
    I'm starting a cactus farm and rattle snake ranch.

    On the bright side the humidity isn't insanely low. Reply With Quote

    May 20, 2020 | 13:33 10 It is amazing how conditions can be so different from one area to another.

    We are getting close to being done, but most of the seed is sitting in dust. There may have been some moisture as we seeded, but it was sucked up and blown away by the constant wind.

    We could take all the rain anybody wants to give us. We have a place to put it. Reply With Quote

    Yea Im in the same boat. Ploughed Mustard into very marginal moisture. Wind the last few days likely dried it out before it could germinate, and even then moisture was uneven so Im sure portions of the field got layed into dry dirt.

    Picked up 0.17" this morning. Ground looks wet, and it smells great. Pawed around in my durum field and below the surface she's pure powder. It's likely going to take an inch at least just to meet the moisture level down below.

    We need to get wet in a significant manner, or patchy emergence in small seeded crops is going to be an issue again like last year. Reply With Quote

    This will probably follow the trajectory of the last systems. Its just a big swirling comma. But.you can always be hopeful......EnviroCan says 60% chance. I can't get the shed doors open to put the trucks in for fear of the wind tearing them off. Reply With Quote

    Red iron shed built in 86 and they work well. Wind is retarded..... on calm days I can't walk around the yard without falling over. Takes a couple of days to get used to walking without wind.

    Leave the trucks out with the tarps open as a sacrifice to the rain gods. Someone has to “take one for the team” .............

    My trucks will be squirrelled away in the shed tonight so as to not tempt the dark gray sky building to the south and west of here. June 1 we could probably have everything beat if the equipment quits literally grenading itself.

    Sorry didn’t mean to like that picture. I suggest moving your hydraulics to float to turn it off. It is much easier on the fan motor. Reply With Quote
    May 20, 2020 | 23:02 22 Looks like a fan hyd motor on a 4/5000(maybe) series air tank?
    Never seen one break like that???. Reply With Quote

    It’s on a 3225 Bourgault tank. The tank came as a double shoot and we’re using it as a single shoot now so luckily there was a spare fan and motor sitting a foot away. It’s got a check valve in the hydraulic plumbing so the motor can freewheel when you shut it down.

    It was an original and was leaking oil anyway. Might have been a little overspeed from trying to push 500+ lbs/ac of fert on the corn ground. 😉 Reply With Quote

    500 lb/acre! Do you fill every third pass? Reply With Quote

    I think you are about 50lbs over the capacity of that fan.

    Small fields filled with many sloughs mean you get more passes per fill😎

    About 20 acres or so per fill. Should have the Morris tank fixed next week which will make life easier Reply With Quote
