It looks as though we are headed for an early harvest in most parts of the country this year, but there are a few exceptions.  Some of our dealers to the north and to the east were delayed by rain, and did not get planted as early as the rest of our dealers.  For those who were not delayed, we could be looking at some harvesting being done as early as the last part of August.

It doesn't seem all that long ago that we could always count on having some time off during the summer while waiting for harvest and the fall season to begin, but with the advent of the post emergent herbicides, free time during the summer months is definitely not what it used to be.  The unfortunate side affect to our business at TSM® is that it's harder to get back into the fall fertilizer season thought process, because everyone is still trying to get done with the old crop season, let alone looking ahead to a new crop season.

I also wish to thank each and every one of you for your support of the TSM® program.   Crop year 2005 will represent our 21st year in this business, and it has been a privilege to be of service to each of you. There have been a lot of changes over the past 21 years, but the basic principle of providing a top-notch agronomy program has not changed since the first days of the company.  We are looking forward to the next 21 years with great anticipation.
