Maybe it's climate chance. Last three years we had drouth spring and rainy summer. Last winter was very cold but without snow so that te plants at the fields were frozen and you had to seed in spring again... We had better harvests years before.

Btw Kenny, your soil looks very dark or is it just the pic? Looks a bit like peaty, turfy - don't know how you say.

The soil is dark as we just had a shower earlier, Wolle! It is what I have always heard as being called 'black gumbo'. When wet, it sticks to everything, just like clay.

There was a lady on the news with a yard stick showing how bad the cracks in her yard was. She stuck the whole yard stick in the crack, she oly had about 1" left over.
