Corn planting days away for Nebraska farmer

An eastern Nebraska farmer says he’s just a few days away from planting.

Quentin Connealy raises corn and soybeans along the Missouri River.

“We’ve been scratching the dirt a little bit prepping some ground,” he said. “We keep missing the rains. We missed this big one last week and I was really hoping for that one. Our planting window got pushed up and I think we could be planting here at the end of the week.”

He tells Brownfield the drought and weed control will be some of his biggest challenges. “Luckily with the dicamba, we have enough around the area that we’ll be good for killing the weeds we need to. And then we need to make sure our pivots can do their job and keep running because they got tired after last year.”

Connealy spoke to Brownfield at a Plant Based Products Council meeting in Omaha on Tuesday.
