It’s not too early to lock in ag inputs


It’s not too early to lock in ag inputs

Harvest is rapidly approaching and a leader with Farm Credit Mid-America says it’s not too early to plan for 2022.

Steve Witges, senior vice president of ag lending, says he’s hearing from farmers concerned about higher input prices and supply chain challenges.

“As we look into 2022, the prices are already up significantly and there is a lot of chatter about concern, even this fall, about getting anhydrous NH3 and dry fertilizer,” he says. “I would say that’s one of the biggest concerns on the farmers mind right now because without those inputs 2022 wouldn’t be very optimistic.”

Brownfield also spoke with Witges about land values during the 2021 Farm Progress Show.
