Farmers are pulling out the planters in preparation for the 2019 growing season. CHS Devils Lake Agronomy Sales Manager Jeremy Safranski says planting is about three weeks away for area farmers, five to seven days behind average. “There is some corn and soybeans left in the field from last fall, and a lot of the ground didn’t get worked,” says Safranski. In addition, very little fertilizer was applied to fields last fall. CHS is making sure enough product is on hand in anticipation of a spring fertilizer rush.”Our sheds are filled to the rafters, and we also added another piece of application equipment,” says Safranksi. “Just be prepared. When it hits, it is going to come fast.”
