Today is April 15, which is tax day for most of us.
Yesterday, by mid-morning a light snow was falling. This morning, the air temperature was 34° F. Soil temperatures at 4 inches of depth were 32° F at 8:30 am.
Don’t rush your move to the fields to plant your corn. Normally, we would like the 4 inch depth soil temperatures to be 50° F and rising before we begin planting.
Remember that the soil temperatures the day we plant and the next day are critical for the germinating corn plant.
