Spring planting 2001

D. R. Hicks and S. L. Naeve, Department of Agronomy, University of Minnesota

For the past three years we have had excellent field conditions for early and timely corn and soybean planting in Minnesota. Conditions are such now that this season will be later, but still could be an "average" or "normal" planting season, especially for soybeans. For a reminder of what's normal, the average corn planting date is May 6; it's May 18 for soybeans. If field-drying conditions exist for the next several days, both crops could be planted in the normal timeframe.
