Aaron Johnson from the Garrison FFA Chapter is the 2020 North Dakota FFA Star Farmer. For his Supervised Agricultural Experience project, Johnson farms with his family near Roseglen, North Dakota. Johnson is raising soybeans and wheat this year and helps his dad farm. “The wheat and soybeans are starting to pop up and I hope things go well for both crops.” Spring work hasn’t been too bad, but they had to harvest corn and flax this spring. “We probably could have got the flax last year, but it was late, cold and wet. We figured we’d wait until better conditions and didn’t lose much over winter. We harvested the flax in mid-April, after the field dried out.” In the fall, Johnson plans to attend Bismarck State College in the fall to study mechanical maintenance and then, return to the family farm.
