Farm Talk's Top 10

January 28, 2014

The Top 10 planting time considerations:

Parsons, Kansas — 10. The stacked trait seed you bought tolerates a dozen different pests — but not rodents while it’s still in the bag.

 9. Ground is ready to plant when you throw a clod at the neighbor’s dog and it bounces rather than splatters.

 8. Spring is officially here when the parts counter guy develops a nervous twitch.

 7. The best rain dance is a load of uncovered seed bags.

 6. Never tell your son/daughter/employee that they can quit for the day when the field is planted — unless you want to see how high your planter will bounce.

 5. If your seedsman won’t answer the phone there may be a shortage of replant seed.

 4. The time to burn pastures is when the neighbor lady is gone but the volunteer fire department isn’t.

 3. You get a better spot on the co-op’s chemical application waiting list if your bill’s paid.

 2. GPS does not recognize that tractor-eating seepy sidehill.

 1. The neighbor who has his planter hooked up and pointed toward the field? He may just be messing with you.
