Extension Educator, Jenny Rees has received many questions regarding planting today/this week regarding cooler conditions predicted with rain events.  Please check out the following CropWatch article just released:  http://cropwatch.unl.edu/2017/corn-soybean-planting-considerations-week%E2%80%99s-cold-snap.  Hopefully these considerations can help some avoid #replant17.
