FARM ACTIVITIES

 

 

Field work:

Spraying weeds for pre-plant weed control

 

 

 

All attention is on the looming challenges for 2022

2022 is already a challenging year and we haven’t even planted a seed.

A short list:

  • Fertilizer : Lack of supply, Shortages, for Phosphates and Potash but especially concerning is nitrogen for the corn crop.  Extremely high cost,  3x and 4x cost of last year
  • Chemicals:  Shortage of some products and higher costs
  • Equipment repairs:  Shortage or delayed parts to repair equipment
  • Fuel:  Higher costs;  propane to dry corn, diesel fuel, DEF supply?
