Farmer has inputs locked in but has longer term concerns

A South Dakota farmer says he’s feeling fairly confident having his fertilizer and crop protection products locked-in.

Jason Frerichs tells Brownfield Ag News he’s been told the products ARE available but he doesn’t want to be overly confident, “Because it sure looks like there will continue to be supply chain issues out there.”

He says the bigger concern is making sure farmers can use crop insurance protection tools long-term, “What will be that next issue in terms of a crop protection product that we can use now that may not be available in the future?”

Frerichs says he’s in an area of endangered species and buffer issues – in northeastern South Dakota – and several counties in the state have new restrictions for Enlist.

Frerichs is on the South Dakota Soybean Association Board and the United Soybean Board.
