Most areas of the Northern Plains were pretty dry over the winter months. The recent rains have helped. “I don’t think this will cure all of the subsoil moisture deficits,” says Clyde Tiffany, field agronomist, Pioneer. “If there is a bright spot to all of this, it’s better to be a little on the dry side than on the wet side while planting.” Tiffany reminders farmers not to rush the planting process. “We’re not stressed on planting dates yet. Give those fields a couple days to dry out.” The Red River Farm Network will travel to Elbow Lake, Minnesota this coming week for the Pioneer Agronomy Update.
