Cheers to the End of #Plant18
According to the latest USDA Crop Progress Report corn planting has finished in Illinois and Missouri. In Iowa, Nebraska, and North Carolina farmers have just 1% of corn planting remaining. If favorable conditions continue farmers in Indiana, Minnesota, and Tennessee may also be done planting corn by the time next week’s report is published.
Here’s how farmers in North America have celebrated the end of the planting season.
1. Praying for rain.
That's a wrap on #Plant18!— Dirt Sweat N Tears (@farmermegzz) May 23, 2018
Yesterday we pushed hard, had 4 field moves & switched crops at 10:30pm & I officially parked the drill at 4am just as the sun was coming up
Good luck to everyone working to finish up! Now let's pray for rain #CdnAg #farm365 @LpgFarms pic.twitter.com/NhUOYuRlCP
1000 acres later, and #plant18 is officially complete! Now for some rain...?— Liv (@oliviamccowan) May 23, 2018
2. Thanking the team.
All us farmers, family members and hired help put in some ungodly hours but we can’t forget to give a big thank you to everyone in the Ag service industry. Everyone from the input retail staff to machinery dealers all keep this Ag ball rolling. #thankyou #plant18— Dennis Clarke (@dclarke7575) May 20, 2018
3. But first, let me take a selfie.
4. Get the boat out.
Life is busy but we always try to have Sunday dinners together @BBLivestockInc, celebrating wrapping up #plant18 this week with #TripleChocolateCupcakes for dessert tonight. pic.twitter.com/dGW1dvDn7I— Amanda Wilson (@ascopie) June 3, 2018
