Field Reports - April 2021

Southeast Nebraska Crop Report: April 23, 2021 

By Gary Lesoing

The previous two weeks when we had warmer temperatures, field work was beginning full force. There is a very small percentage of corn planted and fewer soybeans. There has been a pause in planting this week due to very cold temperatures and snow earlier this week. When we had the warmer temperatures, there were a lot of cover crops terminated. Still fertilizer and pre-emergence herbicide being applied and anhydrous ammonia to be applied. With warmer temperatures forecast for early next week, I expect planting to resume full force. Will need to check fields of alfalfa to see if had any damage from the recent freezing temperatures.
