Farmer reports variable soybean crop

Western Indiana Farmer Kevin Cox says his soybeans are variable after replanting 20 percent of the crop.

“The replanted soybeans have been really slow in catching up which is a little interesting because typically they’ll kick in especially in the very favorable weather that we’ve had lately, so I’m pretty optimistic with the early planted soybeans but not so much about the replanted stuff,” he says.

He tells Brownfield his corn crop is looking good.  

“Our corn looks like it’s coming along really well some I’m really optimistic for the corn crop that we have,” he says.

Cox, who grows corn and soybeans in Clay and Parke counties, says recent timely rains have helped crop development as temperatures continue to soar.
