As we look into next year, farmers will still be paying for the wrongs Mother Nature gave us in 2019. Syngenta sales representative Ben Nesseth says growers are in uncharted territory. “There are a lot of things folks haven’t dealt with in the past. We need to pay attention and lean on our ag retailers and agronomists out there.” Nesseth says farmers are a little gun-shy about longer maturity corn hybrids next year. Buying decisions have been delayed for many crop inputs. To get in the best price, there will be advantages to locking in those inputs now. That may be especially important for the crop nutrients. “The way those markets swing, it wouldn’t be a bad deal to have those conversations right now for the inputs needed for next year.”
