It feels like spring here at the beginning of March. This warm weather has woke farmers up, and agriculture retailers, agronomists and those alike. Based at Devils Lake, North Dakota, Rock and Roll Agronomy owner Jason Hanson says dryness continues to be the biggest concern. “I think we’d see more corn acres planted in my areas for sure if we had more subsoil moisture. But, it’s going to take a lot of moisture to get conditions where we need them.” In northeastern North Dakota, Hanson anticipates an increase in soybean acres and is more uncertain about wheat and corn acres. However, there is still time between now and when the planters start rolling in the Northern Plains. Hanson says farmers are asking questions like: I left everything in stubble and didn’t put any fall anhydrous on. How do I incorporate urea this spring? Should I include a nitrogen stabilizer? Hanson’s answers are, “Yes, yes and then let’s may attention to the moisture situation. Farmers may have to be more adaptable this year because they have to be.” Hear the full story.
