It’s starting to feel like spring. As planting approaches, Dakota Agronomy Partners Sales Agronomist Hunter Schreiner says dry conditions are a concern near Minot, North Dakota. “In the last week, we got a decent shot of wet snow. Once the frost comes up, we hope the moisture will absorb into the ground. Up here, we can go from a drought to a flood within one week. We are trying to keep farmers optimistic.” Farmers are sticking to the same rotation as previous years. “Talking with our local seed expert, pretty much every thing is about level as 2020. What surprised me the most is soybeans weren’t substantially higher. We’re about even as last year in terms of bookings. The dry edible beans are down from last year. Sunflowers and canola are about the same as last year.”
