Input challenges still linger

Southwest Iowa farmer Jeff Jorgenson says managing the crop will be one of his biggest challenges this growing season.

“Fertilizers are expensive and chemicals are expensive, so we want to manage those as best as we can,” he said. “We need to make sure we can maximize on our yields because of the value of this crop.”

He tells Brownfield diesel prices are another concern. “It just doesn’t quit going up,” Jorgenson said.
