Katie,my acres were set back in the fall when I planted wheat as I will double crop with soybeans.Double crop grain sorghum I have ruled out.Soybeans look to be the best money. I will have about 20% more bean acres. I try to spread my work load so I can't shift to many acres. I enjoy your articles.

I think weather is going to impact plantings more the insurance.Here we are first week of March and we have 3 ft. of snow in the fields in places.It is cold all the way to Texas, and won't they be thinking of planting soon? We are going to go from snow to mud because there is not any frost in the ground,Witch is not a bad thing I just don't know when we will be able to topdress wheat or get on the fields. So it could get late for corn in some places.

4.70 corn is much better than 11.50 beans for me, will stay with more corn if weather cooperates
