During the Boots on the Ground Tour, Matthew Pueppke jumped out of the tractor cab to visit with RRFN. Maturities were tightened down with each planting delay. The original plan was to plant 95 day corn. “The highest we ended up planting was 88 day and we’ll be all 80 day corn as we move forward.” The remaining acres will go to soybeans and no Prevent Plant. Pueppke, who farms at Amenia, North Dakota, says PP is a multi-year headache. “That’s why we’re stretching the corn as late as we are to get some organic matter on those acres that were PP and bad bean yields.” The full interview can be found on RRFN YouTube Channel.
