Crops off to good start in southeastern Minnesota

Crops are looking good in southeast Minnesota.

Glenn Groth farms in Winona County and says planting went well.

“We planted all our soybeans first this year, and it took a little while to get them out of the ground but it’s a very good stand of soybeans. And corn as well, we planted our first corn I believe around the second or third of May. And we feel like we did a really good job this year, I’m really happy with how the corn looks around the countryside.”

He tells Brownfield there are signs of crop stress because of all the moisture, raising disease concerns.

“So we’ve been applying fungicide to most of our crops, most of our corn and all of our soybeans the last couple years. And I think that’s going to be a worthwhile investment this year.”

Groth says across southern Minnesota, standing water is not an issue east of Owatonna.
