A crop farmer in southern Minnesota marvels at the advancements in seed performance.
Jerry Demmer of Clarks Grove says today’s hybrids respond so well to dry conditions.
“I can go back to the drought of ’88, it was devastating as far as yield. But 2012, we were pretty good with yields here, but nothing like this year.”
He tells Brownfield his area received half the amount of rain it usually gets during the growing season.
