Spring came early this year, and we are all enjoying the mild weather. Farmers can get on their fields sooner. Plus, the early reverse migration of waterfowl means less crop damage to small grain.
I talked with a customer from Maine recently who told me the temps were in the 70’s this week and the only snow left was in the woods. Another customer from the Shore related that quite a bit of sweet corn had been planted and one grower had even planted field corn.
The early spring has been a welcome change from the long snowy winters of the last few years.
