Corn planters were rolling Wednesday for a southeast Kansas farmer.
Zach Townsend raises corn, soybeans, and wheat near the Kansas/Oklahoma border.
“April 1st is usually a pretty good start date for a lot of guys, so we are a few days ahead of schedule,” he said. “The fields are working nice, and the ground is laying down really good. It’s going to make a really nice seed bed.”
He tells Brownfield he’s concerned about a lack of moisture coming off last year’s severe drought conditions.
