Warm Weather Improves Minnesota’s Late Planted Crop

Just a couple weeks ago Minnesota’s late planted crops were a big industry concern, with a cool wet spring giving producers a lot of headaches.  But a recent turn in the weather and some clear planting days has pretty much brought the State back up to the 5 year average for normal planted seed emergence for this time of year.

Minnesota Farmers report corn and spring wheat plantings are nearly complete, as farmers rush to plant  the remaining percentage.  Soybeans remain at 86% planted, Dry beans are now sitting at about 95%.

Dry Edible Bean growers are reporting excellent early conditions with very good seed emergence.

Off to a great early start for 2014.
