Minnesota farmer not backing down on fertilizer

A southwestern Minnesota farmer is sticking with his crop fertility program despite record fertilizer prices.

Bryan Biegler of Lake Wilson says he recently finished cooking corn.

“All of my P&Ks were set up last fall, so I had them locked in on last year’s prices before they started to take their big increase. I had to bite the bullet with the anhydrous this year, but I haven’t backed down on anything.

He tells Brownfield he wants to maximize the potential of this year’s crop.

“The corn is really coming out now, everything is at least knee high and some are growing to thigh high. So the corn is progressing very well. Beans, they never seem to overdo it until you get there after 4th of July and then they start to take off.

Considering the wet and cool conditions at planting, Biegler says his crops are looking pretty good.

Biegler is currently president of the Minnesota Corn Growers Association.
