The soybean harvest is virtually complete, and the corn is nearly 70% done in the area. The focus now is to disc the remnants into the ground and look to apply fertilizers and applicators into the ground. According to Forest City Farmers Coop Director Randy Broesder, area farmers are taking advantage of applicator prices now.
There may be shipping disruptions in the near future as river levels lower and petroleum prices rise over the winter.
Broesder has a good supply for now and cautions area farmers to get what they can now in case there are disruptions in the coming winter and spring.
