Peterson Farms Seed Lead Agronomist Rick Swenson says many farmers already have crop plans. “There’s an increase in corn and soybeans across North Dakota and a lot of that has to do with the prevent plant acres we had the last few years. There could be fewer dry beans in those areas, but moving across Minnesota, South Dakota and Minnesota, it’s a strong corn and soybean market.” Swenson encourages farmers to look into seed treatments, because this can help crops get a solid start. “It only takes a bushel to pay for the treatment. I’d rather farmers drop their seed populations enough to pay for that and protect their investment instead of risking the chance of a disease moving in.” Check out the entire series on seedling diseases.
