Cool Soil

Soil temperatures remain too cool to plant corn for most areas, plus, the rains from last week, but additional rains this week will keep the soil wet.  To add to this, temperatures this week do not look all that warm, just near average more often than not.  A couple of weeks ago in this segment I mentioned unlike the past several months when the end of this month does not looks to be on the warm side and the past week and what is expected this week seem to be verifying that forecast.  This cooler than normal pattern looks to be sticking around for a while which means we will probably have to wait until May for a persistent warm up.
