Excessive rains in west-central Minnesota forced some farmers to take prevented planting this year.
Traverse County corn and soybean grower Tom Frisch (frish) says it was a frustrating spring.
“It was really wet in our area, so it was kind of a struggle. The tiled ground (was planted) a little late, but still went in in good shape. But we struggled getting the rest of it in and there are definitely some prevented planting acres in our area.”
He tells Brownfield that was also the case in 2011 and 2019, but this year it’s more widespread.
