Agriculture is facing another tight financial situation as spring planting approaches for 2017.
In this week’s special Corn & Grains Outlook section, two area farmers cite good conservation practices that can help save money and resources during periods of low commodity prices.
John Krohn is a young farmer in Boone County who farms with no-till methods and uses cover crops to conserve soil and water.
Don Gasper, 76, who farms north of Lindsay, has experience with both no-till and cover crops over the past six years.
See features on both farmers in the Boone County Area Corn & Grains Outlook inside this week’s Albion News. The special section can be found in both print and e-editions of the March 8 Albion News.
