Continued supply chain issues, high input costs, and access to machinery parts are top of mind for many Midwestern farmers heading into the planting season.
John Yeley farms near Marshall, Illinois, and says he plans to make some adjustments to fertilizer applications.
“I normally try to build (fertilizer) every year,” he says. “With the fertilizer prices where they are, I just did maintenance. So, I did cut back down a bit on that.”
He says some input and machinery prices are a concern.
