Fall Field Work

21 Nov

Usually, after we harvest the crops, we’re done in the fields.  They just lay fallow for the winter.

Next spring we’ll plant corn in my field.  You have to apply anhydrous to help provide nitrogen for the corn.  The prices of everything in farming is expensive, but the prices of anhydrous predicted for next spring is absolutely exorbitant.

That means, my nephew has been applying it this fall before the prices go up.

It’s probably not as effective; some will be lost over the winter, but there’s no way to even break even with the predicted prices.

In good news, we’ve had a fairly wet November, and we are officially back at just being abnormally dry.

Hopefully we’ll get another good rain or two before the ground freezes.
