Doublebhomestead because it shows exactly what the fields around here look like so far this Spring. Almost two months into the Spring season and 90% of the farmers around here have not been able to get into their fields and do any planting.
As I have said though the bees are loving it.
I have no clue if the other states around us are seeing the same conditions or not but as SwampDog mentions at this point it will more than likely mean some crops will not be planted as the farmers will need to put in the faster growing and producing varieties. Down his way that means a reduction in cotton but up here it could mean a reduction in corn, especially feed corn, which will impact the meat producers once again.
Another plus side is that the hayfields are looking pretty good which might balance out livestock issues but usually only helps those herds that are not going to the consumer anytime soon.
It's always something.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
