With the amount of snow on the ground across the region, the likelihood of a late spring increases. The Northern Plains is not alone—many parts of corn and soybean country are also wet. With so little fertilizer applied last fall, it may be a logistical challenge for farmers and ag retailers. CHS President and CEO Jay Debertin made that point at the CHS Ag Services Ag Industry Day in Grand Forks. “I really encourage people to plan ahead and assume that there will be supply challenges. If we’re all going to the field at the same time, there will be supply challenges and I encourage them to take steps to avoid some issues in what really could be a compressed spring.”
