Planting Countdown - Less than a Week.
April 27, 2015
The trend for the last several years has been for weekly rainfall and cool temperatures followed by nice warm weather in early May.  So it is not too surprising that 2015 seems to be holding the same trend we have seen for the last three years.  As the last few days of April pass this year we are expecting fairly cool conditions and some rain on that last day.  Moving into this coming weekend, some nice spring conditions are expected and depending on how much rainfall we get, we are going to be able to start planting in a week or less.  Next week’s forecast indicates a lot of 80 degree temperatures and with the good soil moisture we’ll have, we should expect fast germination and emergence of cotton from planting next week.  This will give us opportunity to dial in our seeding rate pretty close to our target final stands.  It also means keeping the preemergence herbicides close to the planter.  The last variable will be the rain forecast that develops after we start planting.  We’re still a little bit far out, but it reminds me of the start we got last year where cotton was coming up about 5 days after planting in perfect stands.
