The excessively wet fall may have moved soil fertility. AGVISE Laboratories agronomist John Breker says farmers may need to re-sample early sampled fields due to the moisture. “Looking at our regional numbers I’d say we lost roughly 15 pounds out of the top two feet, but that’s an average. There are fields that are higher and fields that are lower.” Breker says prioritize the early season crops first. “Spring wheat, canola and sugarbeets will be the first crops to get in.”
