Farmer testing new practice to boost yields


A Midwestern farmer is trying something new this growing season to capitalize on strong crop markets.

“You can’t save your way to prosperity but you can spend your way broke,” said western Missouri corn and soybean grower Cody Brock.

Brock tells Brownfield there’s a lot of money in fields right now which pushed him to use starter fertilizer while planting corn.

“Just trying to see a way if we can get that corn out of the ground faster and get it off to a better start,” he said.
