A Southwest Nebraska farmer says he’s not in a rush to get planting underway.
Jan TenBensel tells Brownfield that’s partly because soil conditions aren’t ideal, but it also helps limit disease and weed pressure. “We like a later planted corn because we can start with a clean field. It’s easier that way because we can maintain our weed control through the season and our pest control.”
He tells Brownfield that helps provide some certainty since the Environmental Protection Agency has restricted some chemicals.
