Minnesota farmer on thinning margins: “I’ll do whatever I can to get the bushels”

A southern Minnesota corn and soybean farmer suggests profitability is found in production.

Tim Waibel of Courtland says margins are tight because of high input costs and softening commodity prices.

“I’m a firm believer in that I’ll do whatever I can to get the bushels, within reason.”

He tells Brownfield there won’t be any big changes to his crop management plans.

“As far as applications go as far as N, P & K, and what we’re going to do to get keep our plant as healthy as we can until harvest.”

Waibel says he applied all his fertilizer for 2024 last fall and there’s good soil moisture to begin the season.
