Southeast Minnesota farmer thankful for timely summer rains
A farmer in southeastern Minnesota is thankful for timely rains throughout the summer.
Ben Storm grows corn and soybeans near Dover.
“It seemed like we got a decent rain right when we needed them, maybe a few times we got a little on the dry side. But we were extremely fortunate compared to some other parts of the state that were exceptionally dry all summer long.”
A week into soybean harvest, he tells Brownfield yields on heavier ground have been average.
“Not anything super high, just an average crop on the good ground. But the lighter ground has been doing surprisingly well from what I’ve seen.”
Storm recently pulled some ears and is bullish on corn yields because of good moisture and heat.
