Conditions aren’t terrible, yet

Mid-Michigan crop farmer Dave Williams says the planting season was a series of stops and starts as cold fronts moved in and out of his region this month.

“About a week ago we started planting and got everything done,” he says.

Williams says while it’s dry, crops were able germinate but he’s sparingly managing weeds and concerned about how much of a crop he has to market.

“With not a lot of moisture in the forecast, you don’t know how much you dare contract, you don’t know how things are going to turn out ultimately,” he shares.

Williams says conditions aren’t terrible yet and wheat looks good, but rain would help.
