An agronomist says farmers are being careful about their crop investments.

Travis Hofslien from Alcivia Cooperative tells Brownfield with margins tight and commodity prices low, farmers are relying on soil testing to make sure they’re not wasting money on fertility inputs. “There are definitely years to build up your fertility and there are years to, you know, maybe reel it back depending on your soil situations, so I think that goes into consideration pretty much every year but maybe a little more focus this year.”

He says most farmers have been asking about how new products compare to traditional fertility inputs.
