Iowa’s Ag Secretary says he’s optimistic about the 2023 growing season despite some lingering challenges.
Mike Naig says drought continues to impact parts of the Midwest and Plains. “We’ve had really three years of very dry conditions,” he said. “We’ve seen some historically wet conditions through the winter months, so we are all hopeful that will carry over into the growing season. I think that’s big on people’s minds.”
He tells Brownfield input costs are another concern.
