I'm starting to wonder if this is going to be a forgotten year. I replanted sunflowers and corn plot late last week. Sunflowers weren't up at 8 days and I didn't see any trying to come up either. I may of broke the stem off. I checked them around 5 days after planting and a hard crust had formed on the soil from disking then a rain. I ran the aerator over them, like we do soybeans, and it may of broken the stems off under the ground. That's all I can think of. At 8-9 days post plant, there were maybe 25% up. I did plant them a little shallow in hopes they would use the moisture in the ground and get up before the crust. That could've caused them not to come up too. Heck, I don't know. This year has been the hardest for getting crops up I ever remember.
