Farmers are starting to express interest in prevented planting for corn. The final corn planting date for northern Minnesota, much of North Dakota and South Dakota was May 25. Ihry Insurance agent Reed Ihry says the farmers in Barnes, Cass, Griggs and Steele counties of North Dakota are showing interest. Anything south of Highway 200 is pretty wet. Ihry tells farmers to know your base acres by crops and county before going to see your insurance agent. If there is a chance to plant, this could be a better option for farmers. Farmers will also need to file paperwork at the local Farm Service Agency office. Get more details on prevented planting here.
