Abstract
The unavoidable and extreme wet conditions we are experiencing this year present soil management challenges, especially in low and poorly drained fields where a significant portion of the field is under water. The flooding conditions and super saturated soils are causing significant changes in physical, chemical, and biological properties of the soil. The immediate impact the wet conditions have is the prevention and delay in planting wet areas of the fields.
