Farmer discusses crop conditions, market concerns

East Central Indiana farmer Matthew Chapman says the 2020 growing season seems easy compared to last year.

“We started getting rains here about two weeks ago and it is really helping this crop finish,” he says. “I think our crop will be better than expanded and after last year with the wet spring anything we’ve had seems easy.”

He tells Brownfield he’s anxious to see the industry recover from covid-related disruptions.

“I’m anxious to see the ethanol industry rebound and the grain markets pick up again,” he says. “I think the global demand for protein has never been greater and there will be plenty of room for growth and there will be plenty of room for growth as soon as the dust settles.”

Chapman grows corn, soybeans, and wheat in Henry County.
