CHS says keep crops in condition & watch basis

A risk management consultant says now that harvest is essentially complete, keeping grain in condition will be one of the greatest challenges for some farmers.

Patti Uhrich with CHS in southern Minnesota tells Brownfield a wet harvest season means crops need more attention in storage.

“Once you put that crop in the bin, don’t forget about it.  It needs to be checked on; your fans need to be run at opportune times.”

She says many local elevators and farmers have reported with a smaller crop harvested, there’s unused space in storage facilities.

“We do expect our yields to be a little bit lower, and that could potentially give us some opportunity to make some solid marketing.”

She says farmers might find the greatest advantages capitalizing on their local basis.
