Started today until we got rained out around 4:30pm (less than 20% complete). Working around the soys that are left in the field. Maybe move to another farm tomorrow if the rain holds off.
Lots of no-till wheat went into the ground locally this week (including today). Most neighbours should be hitting their target for acres planted.
Hey Wayne - I put a "y" at the top of the metal seed tube that comes out of the seed boot on the JD 750 drill. One tube drops seed from the box and the air hose blows fert down the other tube. Took me a few acres to get the air pressure right - too much air and you blow seed all over the place - not enough air and the fert hoses plug. Worked perfectly for the last 150 acres, so I'm pretty happy with it. Sure beats overpaying for liquid. I hope to use the cart to deliver starter to the corn planter and soybean seed to the planter - I only use the drill for wheat.

Just watched the video - interesting set-up. Did you shove the MAP down the same tube as the seed? Could this possibly work for soys also?

Planting corn after a crop of canola is generally not recommended, and the reason why has to do with beneficial fungi living in the soil. However, some studies and anecdotal experience in Ontario have shown that this rotation is not always problematic.
