Decisions are being made for the 2019 growing season. Valley United Cooperative General Manager Paul Coppin, who is based at Reynolds, North Dakota, is seeing some uncertainty. “Going into 2019, farmers are looking at their cash flow. There is a lot of grain in the bin right now,” says Coppin. “Last fall, a lot of the ground didn’t get worked. So, that may influence what they plant come spring.” There may be some shift away from soybeans, but Coppin does not expect to see a significant swing in acres this year.
