Cool soil is constant during the fluctuating April of the Upper Midwest

According to agronomists, there were various conditions in the Upper Midwest in April, but one constant was cool soil temperature.

Harmon Wilts covers DEKALBA sgrow in the Midwestern Minnesota.

“It was the temperature of the soil that was the same throughout the state, and actually in the Upper Midwest. It was cooler than it was decades ago.”

He says the brownfield soil conditions are good and the calendar said it was a go-time.

“The fields looked good, but on April 25th and 26th, and the day of the highest planting of high-yielding corn, we were still sitting at soil temperatures of 34 and 35 degrees Celsius. I was wondering if we should plant it. “

Wiltz says most farmers in his geography were waiting until April 29th.th When the soil temperature reaches 45 degrees at a depth of 4 inches. From there he says the pace exploded on most of the expected acres of corn, soybeans and sugar beet planted within 10 days.
