Wet conditions causing problems in Minnesota
Wet conditions were an issue for parts of Minnesota in March.
The USDA reports most of the snowpack is melting into the soil, but frost is still present in some of the state leading to localized flooding and while calving is underway, feed supplies are adequate, and livestock conditions are generally good, mud has been an issue and portions of Minnesota have seen higher than normal livestock losses and disease because of the wet weather and fluctuating temperatures.
The 2019 corn harvest isn’t quite over and most producers are waiting for better conditions to apply fertilizer ahead of 2020 planting.
The USDA’s weekly crop progress and condition reports resume April 6th.
