Despite one of the coldest winters in decades and multiple feet of snow, Bob Bonar with RLB Tiling states that soil quality in the area is doing well although sub-soil moisture is still low. He explains that the hard frost hasn’t allowed snowmelt to permeate the subsoil. Although, the hard frost may have helped break up and fracturing hard-pans created during last springs heavy rains. Looking forward to the spring, Bonar states the area needs slow rains that may occur over 24 hours, which will help replenish the subsoil moisture and be beneficial to area farmers.
