Farmer ready to continue planting when conditions improve

Southern Ohio farmer Greg Corcoran says he was able to complete fieldwork and plant some soybeans because of recent warm and dry conditions.
“We were able to get most of our anhydrous on ahead of our corn, I think we’re only down to a couple hundred acres that’s left and we should have most of that in soon,” he says. “We did put some soybeans in the ground. We’re mostly trying to work out some things with the planter and make sure everything was running well, but we took advantage of that weather and put maybe 100 or so acres in the ground.”
He tells Brownfield conditions in his area changed quickly.
“Right now conditions are wet,” he says. “We had probably an inch and a half of rain over roughly a two-week period and we haven’t had the sun to dry that out and the warmer weather we would look for,” he says.
Corcoran says their equipment is ready when the weather allows them to continue planting. He raises corn, soybeans, and popcorn in Ross, Pike, and Scioto counties.
