Welcome to our Farm!

7/26


The crops across northern IL continue to look good. We have been fortunate to catch a few rains every week or 10 days. We spent this week making our last pass across the crop by spraying fungicide on our soybeans. The airplanes have been busy spraying fungicides on the corn. We also have been staying busy mowing, hauling to Clinton, and working on summer projects. 


Today, I was checking some wind damage on a field of corn with my drone. One minute into the flight, the battery failed and the drone landed straight down in the field. I tried to run out and find it as it landed, but I was too late!  I spent 15 minutes crawling on the ground between the rows and couldn't find it. I was about to give up and I looked up and it was stuck on top of one of the stalks! Apparently it was my lucky day! 


Have a good week!
