A farmer in north-central Iowa could be planting corn by this weekend.
Speaking to Brownfield Monday, Josh Nelson of Belmond says winter and early spring moisture has recharged soils and conditions look stellar.
“I know there’s some people trying to get oats in in the area, I’m probably going to do some CRP seeding this afternoon. And we might actually get around to planting some corn possibly this weekend if these nice temperatures hold out.”
But Nelson suggests he’s not in a hurry.
