Winter Field Observations

Winter field observations are early looks used to evaluate how the crops fared over the winter. This year it occurred on the warm  and sunny day of February 23rd.  What did we see? The early signs told us that all of the fall-planted crops are doing well here in Potter County, Pennsylvania. Look below to see what we saw!
