Our Farming 2021

2021 Farming

I have some unusual crop plans for this year. First, a majority of our 180 acres will be planted to soybeans. I've had the west side of the farm in corn for two years. Part of it for three years. It's good to rotate out to help get rid of certain weeds and bugs. On the east side (of the road) I'm going to intercrop corn, beans, corn, beans, six rows of each over about 60 acres. This enables to corn to get more sunlight on each edge. Come back to watch the progress.
