A few farmers around Minot, North Dakota are getting started in the field. Dakota Agronomy Partners crop advisor Alex Fornshell says they began spreading fertilizer last week. “Within the last few days, a handful of farmers are starting to seed wheat,” says Fornshell. “There is still likely a few days before more join in.” Fornshell is recommending using a seed treatment with cool soils. “Seed treatments can help farmers get the plant out of the ground stronger and a little more,” says Fornshell. “It’s good insurance to put on right now.”
