Making Rain

Above Farmer Fred is applying liquid nitrogen to the AdFarm corn acres. He calls this process top dressing.
I prefer to call it making rain.
This magic moisture is applied to provide nutrients and get the crop off to a healthy start.
The amount of moisture added to the soil is actually negligible, which is good because we have had plenty of rain.
But with three sprayers covering our crop, the water trucks stay busy.
All of the corn acres in GriggsDakota needed a refreshing drink of nitrogen top dressing so the leaves would continue to grow green and healthy. Farmer Fred, along with Robbie and Don have been busy making rain.
