Ohio farmer feels drenched

The head of the Ohio Soybean Association says he hopes to have a spell of dry weather to make headway on fieldwork.

“We didn’t get any field work done last fall with as wet as it was.  We ended up finishing harvest the first weekend of December.”

Scott Metzger raises soybeans, corn, wheat and barley south of Columbus.  He tells Brownfield since the first of January, he’s received nearly 10 inches of rain.

“I’m hoping we get a little dry period just so I can get the wheat and barley top-dressed and then get geared toward spring.”     

Metzger says he plans to plant a little bit more corn and wheat this year but it won’t be a significant difference to past years.
