Farmer says fieldwork is in progress, but planting is not in progress

Greg Corcoran, a farmer in southern Ohio, says spring fieldwork is underway despite cool conditions.

“It’s wet on and off, but it’s mostly cold. The temperature didn’t rise as much as we wanted,” he says. “I was able to apply 90% of the anhydride. The dryer stretch was cold, but I was able to put in a lot of input that I usually do before planting.”

Corcoran told the brownfield that he hopes to be able to plant this week.

“We think we have the opportunity to go out and plant many acres. There is a temperature to start planting. It’s on the corn border, but the soybeans should be in good condition, so planting To start. “

But he says it is expected to rain more this weekend.

“It’s a time when we feel we have to start, we need to start putting things on the ground and start planting,” he says. “But if we get cold and wet again, we should always be careful, as it can be a nuisance to the seeds and things that come out of the ground.”

Corcoran grows corn, soybeans and popcorn in the Ross, Pike, and Scioto counties.
