perventive planting ND 06/16/2011 @ 10:26am I think your estimate may be to high on the number of acres planted before the final numbers come in. I think this acreage estimates is by driving by on the roads seeing the land is planted but if you seriously start looking even at what got planted in the state there is acreage left even in the planted fields that was left to be planted later if it dryed up well its never happened. I willing to bet on average there's 5 to 10% left unplanted even in the fields that were planted so the actual acreage planted maybe much less. These figures won't come out until after acreage sign up and they get factored into PP. I also think the 25% acreage is too low. Even in RR valley there's alot of acreage not planted its been better around fargo and Grand Forks but north there been quite struggle going on getting land planted. Also in centeral part of the state there's water standing in fields and even where there were potholes there much bigger than were last year or over the last several years. I think people not out in country are just more optmistic we farmes got more planted but this unique year. Now we haven't even talked about condition some there crops were planted into. The market is just going to take time realize how much crop is not going to get produced this year.
