Newest at the top, here are some pictures from 2006, it was a pretty good year! We expanded from 150 to 250 acres, mostly beans this year, and have above average yeilds for corn and beans. With grain prices high and up going 100% corn next year we are really excited about 2007.


Putting Down Fall Nitrogen for 07 Crop

We use an anhydrous bar with Mole knives to make strips. Next spring we will plant corn into those strips.
I rented this New Holland/Genesis tractor to speed things up and boy was it nice compared to my 20 year old John Deere.

Putting Down Fall Fertilizer for 07 Crop
Fertilizer is always put on before corn crops. Since we are going 100% corn for 2007 there was a LOT of fertilizer put down this fall.
Harvest 2006
Corn harvest was too hectic and fast and we didn't get any pictures-but here are some doing beans.

Extreme No-Till In Beans!
Corn and Beans Growing!
Bean Planting - New Planter Did a Pretty Good Job!
Corn Planting - New Planter Did a Great Job!
I did not like the spiked closing wheels when planting beans (although yeilds turned out ok) I am switching to regular old rubber press wheels for
beans only from now on. The spiked ones worked great in corn.
Spraying
Spraying is all done by a friend and neighbor-they do a great job.
April Flood - 4 inches in 2 hours
Amazing how quicly it can dry out after that much water.
Putting in Drainage Tile
Several thousand feet of tile and waterway work done this year, is going to make this farm much nicer to farm and should really improve yeilds on our wet spots.
