Corn Crop in Minnesota’s Clay County Is in Good Shape

Beau Jacobson, who farms in Hitterdal, is feeling good about his crop. “We were actually behind on GDUs coming into the end of June, but we’ve come on strong and crop development is great.” It may not be a record, but Jacobson is expecting an above-average soybean crop. As we finish this year’s crop, Jacobson says it is not too soon to make plans for next season. Drainage should be part of that decision-making process. “It is a struggle in this economic environment to spend the working capital on tile, but it is one of the top paybacks for the farm,” said Jacobson. Jacobson operates Premium Ag Solutions, which features Precision Planting, 360 Yield Center, Channel and more.
