Despite snow still covering some fields, farmers are already focused on the planting season ahead. Economics and fertility needs are just some of the factors to be considered when deciding which crops are planted where. Rio Creek Feed Mill General Manager Andy Barta says their business is helping farmers sort through the “what-if” scenarios.
Barta says technology and nutrient management plans have helped with those conversations with farmers as they plan the spring planting in the winter time. Agiculture.com gave farmers an extra reason to be excited, saying last week the United State Department of Agriculture is projecting gradual price increases for crops over the next decade.
