According to Bayer Field Sales Representative Clark Leier, specialty crops are bidding for acres for the 2022 growing season. “More barley acres are being talked about, more edible beans and sunflowers are getting traction again.” Increased demand for specialty crops could steal acres from corn, soybeans and wheat. Leier, who is based at Minot, said that will vary on a regional basis. “It’s all over the board, some retailers are saying they’ll lose acres out of corn, others are saying it will come out of soybeans and wheat. They’ll lose corn acres with guys that haven’t been fertilizer yet.”
