Minnesota farmer locking in inputs

A farmer in northwest Minnesota is locking in inputs for 2023.

Austen Germolus of Borup grows corn, soybeans, wheat, and barley.

“With fertilizer prices being high, and not knowing what the future will bring, it’s been a good program to lock in some of those inputs.”
