TROUBLE 01/11/2013 @ 11:09am Tear it up? What is there to tear up? Where I farm too many conventially tilled fields have nothing to tear up. There was not germination of the wheat planted in September AND there is no cover on the ground. As far as planting a spring crop, there is no moisture to germinate that either. After Jan, Feb, and March winds there may not be any topsoil left to plant into. We need about 10" of moisture now just to get back to any semblance of normal. What are the odds of that over the next 4 months?
