After improving conditions..and a couple of days with temperatures above normal...there was optimisim over farmers getting into their fields. But following a soggy weekend
and now a cold spell, more delays are expected. As of sunday top soil moisture levels are rated at 35% surplus and according to the Wisconsin Ag Statistics Service the only activity we are seeing is some manure hauling in drier areas and a very limited seeding of oats.
As for the alfalfa crop, concerns remain and many crop consultants and ag agents are advising growers to take a look especially at the older alfalfa stands.
