Some late week heat and rain was welcomed on several planted acres that were looking for a boost. Stands look to be decent with several low areas needing to be spotted in. Chemical application has been a challenge, with wet fields and cold temperatures sidelining many sprayers. All in all, we are ahead of last year but behind average by the calendar. With the forecast, activity should be a little better this week and will help with catching up. The downtime was nice, but I think everyone is ready to get back to normal-ish.
