Called turnover as the cold top water sinks to the bottom the fish come up.

If you want multiple + 10# now is the time to fish Tobin.

Summer was phenomenal even in the extreme heat Reply With Quote
helmsdale's Avatar Oct 27, 2021 | 13:02 33 what is "rain"? had a couple 1 and 2 tenth showers here since mid june, and thats it.

Latest weather runs have progressively backed out total precip out of this next system from .75 10 days ago, to .2 or less now.

Looks like we're heading into winter DRY! Reply With Quote

    The bright side is that it reduces the need for $1100 urea. I think the fertilizer industry really got ahead of itself cranking the prices like there is no tomorrow this fall. Sheds full of over priced urea and no demand for it. Happened before and took dealers down. Reply With Quote

    Are the dealers sheds full with high priced urea? I think they were more cautious this year. Reply With Quote

    If the current situation doesn't change in a big way I'll be bare-balling it... possibly a little bit of starter, and that's it!

    There is absolutely NOTHING in reserve here, and this place does not, as a rule, get timely rains. Reply With Quote
    Oct 29, 2021 | 20:07 43 Same here, 3” all year since May. Ground is completely dry. Won’t be making any final decisions until May next year. Reply With Quote

    Apparently it takes an inch of rain per bushel around here Reply With Quote
    Oct 30, 2021 | 07:42 45 We had about 4.5 in since the snow left.
    West of Tobin Lake.
    Some who won the shower lottery got enough for some close to normal fields.
    Still green around but has to be due to a little bit we have got the last few weeks.
    Friend trenching said dry 10 ft down.
    Won't fill that back before new crop.
    Need about 15 in to fill that back up? Reply With Quote
    Oct 30, 2021 | 09:43 46 Shower last night put almost a half inch in the fall freeze up bank. Reply With Quote

    That what I am doing on two fields of canola stubble that yielded under 10. 50 - 60 lbs of a blend consisting of 2/3 N. Did that on a field of canola that yielded poorly with canola due to flooding in 2019. Turned out my best field of 2020. Ran out of the starter and you could see exactly where it ran out so having a bit up top near the seed was important. Fortunately that was near the edge of the field and in some of the poorest ground. I did soil tests on the better canola field that yielded in the low 20's so will be interesting to see what is there. Fertilized for more than I got on that one as well. This is on solonetzic ground so needs perfect weather to grow a good crop. Reply With Quote
    Oct 30, 2021 | 14:22 48 Anywhere that had 13.5 protein wheat had about 50#N at harvest time as you cant produce high protein with no residual N.
    How much the green regrowth took I cant say but theoretically non because nothing was removed. Reply With Quote
    Oct 30, 2021 | 16:26 49 1/2 inch rain last night makes 1.1inches on the week. 10.15 inches since April 1. 1/2 of that total coming after crop was already dead in mid August. Relentless heat and wind made for the Poorest crop grown on this farm in my lifetime. Wasn’t around in 61. Looking much better for next year at this time compared to same time last year. Fall work mostly done other then a bit of excavator and s c r a p e r work.
    I hope SCIC is well underwritten as claims will be in the multiple billions!! Reply With Quote
