Minnesota farmer says regulations “always at the forefront”

Regulations impacting agriculture remain a major topic at this year’s Commodity Classic.

Southeast Minnesota corn and soybean grower Darin Johnson says state and federal regulatory issues are a constant battle.

“Try to make sure farmers are able to farm the way that they have and will continue. Obviously conservation and stewardship is (top of mind), it always has been with farms. And it’s just changed over the years. But yes, regulatory is always at the forefront.”

The Minnesota Soybean Growers Association vice president tells Brownfield crop protection tools are limited.

“Making sure that we are able to keep the chemistries that we have available to us now, (and) that we’ll be able to use them moving forward.”

Johnson says conservation policy also needs to fit what farmers are doing and not become “a one size fits all approach.”
