Good morning folks,
Here is a link to our archived reports for the grain growing cycle from 2010-2011 in the Land.
You will note in the post before this one that the IMS stated it was the warmest winter recorded by them. Warmth does not equal early barley. For that to happen there has to be other mitigating factors, as many of you already know.
My purpose for posting this topic is to help others come up to speed about trying to use just one of the criteria in the growth cycle to project a final result. Bad arithmetic for sure and thus a failing grade.
Also note the dates Rick and I did these inspections.
This year they will take place a week later and that is an important factor when it happens in the early weeks of March. The archived inspection records clearly show that.
Our peace we give to you!
