Sugar beets have started going in the ground. No corn yet that I’ve seen.

I 'planted' some rice today. 

The last two years it has been so wet i couldn't get my rice planted with a drill so I water seeded it. It's wet again here and I'm not wanting. We are supposed to get 3 to 4 inches of rain over the next couple days.

So I got out in the mud and sprayed roundup then spread rice seed on the mud. The rain will flood the field for me. Sorry no pics, it was too hard driving. 

Normally the spraying and seeding would be done with an airplane but they are hard to schedule here.

I got half my rice planted.

I've got to get set up where I can spray and seed with my 4366 or some other 4wd if I'm gonna continue water seeding.

Thx-Ace

Got near 100ac of new grass (fescue) and 50 of the 250 corn in the ground.  Next 30 tomorrow am. Was drippy last week and thats fine.  It was fluffy dry which isnt any good.  .5 to .7 inch sure firmed up stuff.  Unusually dry April.... so May will be wet.

 

I thought everyone no tilled in the I states?!???

I know you ran a Deere planter for a lot of years prior to your new planter that is pictured. How do you like the Early Riser units compared to the other brand?  I’m contemplating going from a green to a red planter in the future. Any insight would be appreciated.

It’s very dry here in northern IL, we have been missing every chance they call for. My new to me John Deere planter is running like a sewing machine. Grandpas 955 cyclo is also running good. Done with corn, should finish beans tomorrow.

  I have always felt like I took a little step backwards in the row unit when I went to the Deere from the early riser.  That being said I have no complaints about the green planter I drug it over a bunch of acres for 15 years.  Obviously going from a JD 1760 to this is a MAJOR upgrade.  I really like this planter.  It is amazing in some ways.  Intimidating in others.  Lots of technology!  
I suppose a new Deere is very similar but I am happy to have the early riser units again.  They seem to “just work” in a myriad of conditions.  So, no regrets on buying the Red planter.  Would make the same decision again.

Boys were excited yesterday after school to lend a hand.  Back in November asked about UTV and instead of the Mule we ended up with a Gator.  Yesterday was the earliest that we’ve ever been able to get corn in (typically it is May 18th on average).  Soybeans are all planted.
