There is a positive attitude for farmers heading into spring. BASF Agronomic Solutions Advisor Sara Swenson, who is based at Hillsboro, gives a lot of credit to the fall field conditions. “A lot of growers in the region got their fertilizer down. They got everything off the field this past year, which was great considering the year before.” A large percentage of seed was booked early this year, but Swenson expects more seed business to happen. “With the uptick in the soybean markets, people may be switching acres from wheat to soybeans so I think we’ll still see soybean purchases going into spring.”
