Pioneer District Sales Lead Brett Goodman is seeing a shift in acres for northwest Minnesota and North Dakota. “We’re going into this spring with a lot of interest in soybeans. We are geared up for that shift in acres and we’ve seen those sales numbers this winter.” Goodman says canola also has a lot of interest in the northern and western parts of North Dakota. There is optimism for the season ahead. “With the lack of moisture we’ve had and the ditching that was done last fall, we’re in a good position to set up for an early spring and we hope that holds and just like any farmer we’re also hoping for a nice half-inch of rain after planting.”
