Dry conditions from southwest to northeastern Missouri are challenging some farmers as they try to finish spring planting.
In northeastern Missouri, farmer Brian Munzlinger tells Brownfield he’s having to re-evaluate planting depth for soybeans.
“I tried to get the screwdriver in the ground far enough to get moisture. That’s I gauge how deep to plant a crop. We’re just laying soybeans in about one inch and hoping there will be enough rain to bring them up.”
In central Missouri, farmer and Beck’s Hybrids Seed Advisor Clarissa Cauthorn says it is a similar situation.
