In the next month, Fessenden Co-op Association general manager Mark Hovland says, weather pending, some North Dakota farmers could start spring fieldwork. Very little fertilizer was applied in the fall and the co-op has some carryover supplies. “There’s a little bit left over, but we filled up in the early winter. We’re topping everything off again now so we’re full going into spring.” Hovland says there is no concern at this time about the ability to get products. They’re in a wait-and-see mode as a result of the coronavirus. “Who knows? This is just disrupting all kinds of stuff right now. It could get worse before it gets better.”
