Pick Your Poison

Farmers across the Upper Midwest are struggling with both drought and excess moisture this spring

Some areas are so wet that farmers will have a tough time planting their crops before it gets too late. Other areas are so dry that producers are worried about having a crop worth harvesting. I’ve talked with farmers in both camps this spring; opinions differ on which is worse.

If you’ve lived through both drought and excess moisture, and most veteran producers on the Northern Plains have, you have your thoughts on which is worse. Let me know what you think.
