Later Planting Season for Farmers

by Jonathan Ransom


WE’RE LATE WE’RE LATE FOR A VERY IMPORTANT DATE!!! Farmers are late to bite the bullet on planting this year. I asked a couple local farmers how this will affect them. Will this affect the markets in anyway. Do you feel there will be more of a rush this fall to get this crop out. Are you worried about the late planting season window. Then I did a comparison of this year and last years planting progress.


This time last year farmers farmers had all of their corn in the ground and most if not all of their soybeans in. This year only 34% of the US farmers have their corn in the ground and 10% of their soybeans in. Most of the farmers are worried about having to replant because of the cold temperatures.


Then I asked some local farmers their thoughts about this. I Asked Corey Ransom how this will affect him-(It doesn’t right now but it might if the weather doesn’t cooperate). Will this affect the markets in anyway-(I hope it will, but most likely it will not). Do you feel there will be more of a rush this fall to get the crop out-(Depending on how the season goes, if there’s good weather then no but if the weather is not good then there might be a rush). Are you worried about the late planting season window-(A little bit).

Then I asked Austin Trager how this will affect him-(It won't). Will this affect the markets in anyway-(No). Do you feel there will be more of a rush this fall to get the crop out-(No). Are you worried about the late planting season window-(Yes).

And the last person I asked was Alex Olson how this will affect him-(Time crunch to get the crop in). Will this affect the markets in anyway-(Not to much cause there are other states that are on time with their planting). Do you feel there will be more of a rush this fall to get the crop out-(Not really, we will get it out when we can). Are you worried about the late planting season window-(Little bit).
