Wet conditions dampen crop conditions in southwest Minnesota

National crop condition ratings are higher compared to the past several years, but southwest Minnesota farmer Bryan Biegler tells Brownfield that’s not the case on his farm.

“We have a lot more unevenness out in the field this year.”

He says frequent rains delayed planting and drowned out crops.

“Definitely have some thin spots out in the field, and doing my side-dress and stuff you could see those areas. And they were still a little bit wet yet too, so we have definitely had better beginnings to the season than this.”

Biegler grows corn and soybeans near Lake Wilson.
