Ground conditions: Land condition depends on where you are in the country yet again. This time the south escaped the worst of the rain, but conditions are wet in much of the northern half of the country.

While planting continues in places, most fieldwork has been stopped in other parts of the country. Growers are prepared to let these few days of broken weather pass in the hope of better weather to come. The break may provide opportunities to get pre-emerge herbicides applied.
