The planting plan depends on when spring decides to make an appearance. Peterson Farms Seed agronomist Adam Spelhaug says farmers were in a similar scenario in April of 2013. “We got a foot of snow in mid-April, but still got a lot of acres planted that year. I mean, we’ve planted corn in the first of June more times than I’d like to admit. So, I’m not too worried yet.” Spelhaug thinks there will be some acres in flux until farmers get to planting. It’s all dependent on weather conditions. “The guys set up for corn will continue to raise it. There’s a lot of interest in soybeans and a little bit of wheat talk. Depending on what happens, the beans and wheat could change.”
