Poll: If conditions are right, how many days would it take to get the crop in?

by

If you’re lucky, once in your farming career you’ll get the perfect spring season: warm, dry weather, fit soil, few breakdowns, and a gentle, warm soaking rain once the last seed is tucked in to its furrow.

More likely, though, a farming career is a series of too wet, too dry, too late, too troubled to make the “best of” highlight reel.

This year, many acres are still waiting to see equipment, or equipment is already sitting idle waiting for rain. But, when we look at progress in a given week when nature cooperates, we see impressive amounts of crop make it in the ground.

And that prompts our latest poll. We want to know, if conditions are right, and the weather held, how many days would it take you to get the crop in?

The other side of this poll could be, what is the main element that holds you back from getting the crop in faster? Is it labour to drive equipment? Equipment size and horsepower? Support labour, ie. fertilizer and seed delivery?
