With this spring’s especially wet weather, farmers may be adjusting their planting decisions.  At our Follow Farming field we recently made the decision that instead of five acres of corn and five acres of soybeans, we are going to plant all soybeans.  Farmers are beginning to adjust because corn would typically get planted between April 15 and May 31 in our local area.

Crop insurance is a way that farmers manage risks.  Allen Douce of the Thomas Milligan Agency explains what crop insurance is and how farmers may utilize its many options.  This year has certainly required farmers to make and continually adjust their planting decisions.
