Throughout North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota, crops are under stress. “Everywhere is the same, we’re all on a razor’s edge as far keeping this crop alive with the moisture we’ve gotten,” said Pat VanLith, digital business manager, Granular. “If we’ve been lucky enough to pick up a rain or two we may look a little better, but, regardless, at two o’clock each day it is a good time to go inside and have a glass of lemonade because you don’t want to go look at crops.” With the dry conditions, there is extreme variability in the field. During the Pioneer Agronomy Update this past week, VanLith said tools are available to help farmers evaluate that variability. Granular Insights provides analysis to identify the impact of agronomic decisions.
