In the last week, Minnesota’s soybean crop conditions declined. Peterson Farms Seed Lead Agronomist Rick Swenson, who lives near Underwood, Minnesota, says there are pockets of good and bad. “The crops near home are past the point of no return, but then, farmers south of Fergus Falls have received ok rains. The soybeans may only be eight inches tall and they never did canopy. They’re aborting pods. The pods left need to fill.” Minnesota’s corn is rated 36 percent good to excellent. “Some of the corn is only knee to waist high and it’s tasseled out. There won’t be a cob on that.” Hear the story.
