How did Ag Producers do during the 2019 planting season? Kent Thiesse with MinnStar Bank says there were various answers.

 

“Depending on when you planted, depending on how much tile drainage you had, whether or not you were hit by green snap, it affected how your season went,” said Thiesse. “There was a lot of variation from farm-to-farm, even within a small area.

 

Thiesse says if producers in this area reached their five to ten-year average yield this year they were likely happy, but many reported yields 10 to 20 percent lower than that level.
