Golden Harvest District Sales Manager Brian Langeland covers south central Minnesota. Langeland says planting progress along the I-90 corridor is the problem area. “We’ve had at least seven inches of rain. There are lots of farmers who have some corn in, but now it’s looking like it will be one week before we can get back in the fields,” explains Langeland. “East of there, we had some pretty good progress. There is corn in portions of Blue Earth County. West of Highway 15, we’ve got growers that haven’t turned a wheel.” Langeland also says the crop that is planted is being impacted by the excessive moisture.
