Temperatures were slightly above normal, but additional precipitation added to existing soil moisture surpluses did little to bring planting season closer and limited growers to preparations for the planting of the 2015 corn and soybean crop.Winter wheat has begun to break dormancy and some farmers have begun topdressing their fields when they can. Several fields are still too wet to drive equipment, leaving some concerned about delays in the planting schedule. Pastures are greening up with the increased temperatures. Mint and potato farmers have begun planting in fields. Other activities for the week included hauling grain to elevators, preparing field equipment, and receiving deliveries of corn and soybean seeds in anticipation of spring planting.
