Area Condition Update: The spring began with a fairly significant flood. Several dike breaches were identified and the DNR crew made quick work of getting them repaired. However since then we have been experiencing frequent showers with cool days which has slowed spring planting progress on the area. As of Friday 5/26/17 the only field planted was the 30’s. The Sharecropper has his shares and state shares all complete there. The 40s are tilled up ready to be planted when conditions permit. The rest of the diked cropped fields are still too wet to farm. All is not lost yet there is still plenty of time to get the crops in.
