The 2018 harvest started off in good shape with most plots coming out of the field a little bit earlier than normal aided by the warm summer that accelerated crop maturity. However, things came to halt as frequent October and November showers made it difficult to get equipment into the fields. Corn harvest was not impacted and we were very fortunate to finish cotton harvest just prior to the rains starting. Like many of the growers in the area, we were not able to finish off soybeans prior to the wet weather and harvest of the remaining soybean plots was delayed by several weeks. We did finally get a small harvest window just prior to Thanksgiving that allowed us to finish off harvest for this season.
Winter wheat has also suffered from frequent showers that made wheat planting difficult. We did manage to get our wheat planted, but wet ground and cold temperatures have resulted in a crop off to slow start.
As temperatures drop, the heated greenhouse becomes an evermore appealing option. Annual start-up maintenance is complete and we currently have ample space to add your greenhouse projects. Let us know how we can help you continue to generate the data you need through the winter months.
We would like to offer our sincere thanks to those who helped make 2018 such a successful year at Diligence Technologies. We are grateful for the customers and friends (those are mostly the same people by the way) that trusted us with their research needs. We hope that you and your families have a blessed Christmas season.
