Farmer welcomes warm, dry conditions
A northwest central Ohio farmer is welcoming the 80-degree forecast after a slow start to the planting season.
Patty Mann tells Brownfield “we had a real brief window a week ago where we just did a little seven-acre field. We got the corn planter out so that field is in, and we have some fertilizer spread on another field we hope to plant this afternoon.”
She says there are still some wet spots in fields.
“We still need a few more days of drying conditions before we can go full tilt,” she says. “It’s predicted temperatures are supposed to be seasonal and back in the 70s next week so that would be great planting weather and I sure hope we get a chance to get started.”
Mann grows corn and soybeans in Shelby County.
