Late Planting vs Prevent Plant

NDSU Extension Farm Management Specialist Ron Haugen says farmers have three options when it comes to late planting or resorting to prevent plant. “If it gets to be really late, one of the main decisions is should I even plant a crop at all and try to collect insurance, should I plant late, or should I switch to a different crop?” Haugen says the conflict in Ukraine adds a sense of urgency to get a crop in the ground. “We really want to get a crop in the Upper Midwest with all that’s happening in the world right now. Prices are really good even with high expenses.”
