Missouri grower doesn’t want a 2018 repeat

A Missouri corn and soybean farmer couldn’t catch a break in 2018 which he calls a “really bad” year. Jay Schutte, who farms near Mexico, Missouri, told Brownfield Ag News at Commodity Claiss he still had 350 acres of corn to harvest, “We got hit with a really bad storm. Seventy-mile-an-hour winds sustained for 10 minutes knocked the corn flat. We finally think we’re going to get word from the insurance company as to whether or not we can walk away from that corn and just abandon it.” Add to that, the summer drought and too much rain in the fall.
