Decrease in commodity prices has some growers worried

For the first time in several years, growers are having to worry about the price of the grain they are selling.
On average, one bushel of corn has fallen to below $4 and a bushel of soybeans has fallen to below $10.

This is a far cry from the $9 corn and $15 soybeans growers were earning back during 2012. Through all of this, growers have become increasingly concerned about making ends meet.

Agvantage FS agronomist Jamie Borglum reminded growers to focus on yields and work towards maintaining proper management practices to obtain high yields this harvest season.

Borglum said he does not expect growers to change their management practices; he anticipates that growers will focus more on improving the fertility of the soil to improve yields in future years.
