A Central Kansas farmer says the multi-year drought will force him to switch up his crop acres and seed populations for 2023.
“If we’re dry, we’re going to be dropping seed because we have to have a plant that is sustainable.”
Brian Sieker tells Brownfield one of his biggest changes could be his corn crop. “We’ll drop population to what we think for a yield goal and make sure that we have hybrids that will flex and try to match what the weather will do to what type of a crop that we think we can have.”
The Rice County farmer says he will wait as long as possible before deciding which crops to plant.
