The time is now for many farmers to head to their fields to harvest some of the first crops of the season. According to the Wisconsin AgConnection, corn and soybeans are progressing ahead of schedule while oats and wheat are at about the same point as they were last year. About a quarter of the winter wheat crop in the state has been harvested, which Adam Barta from Rio Creek Feed Mill says is important as prices remain tight.
According to Successful Farming, dry weather in Europe is to thank for the highest prices corn and soybean farmers have seen in about two weeks. Barta says waiting on harvesting crops could leave it susceptible to disease and damage.
