High prices have farmers looking for show deals

A Wisconsin farmer says he is definitely adjusting his 2022 cropping plans.

Doug Nett from Malone, Wisconsin is at the WPS Farm Show, and says he’s looking for deals to save some money.  He tells Brownfield he’s already trying to save money with his crop rotation because of high nitrogen prices. “So, we’re probably going to do 2/3 beans and 1/3 corn, where we would always do half and half beans and corn.”

And he’s also planning to change some of his application rates. “We had to adjust a little bit for potash. You don’t want to skimp on the crops but we had to adjust a little bit if the crop doesn’t take as much or as strong of a phosphorus or potash. We backed off a little bit that way.

Nett says he’s expecting 138 acres of soybeans and 38 acres of corn this year.

Brownfield Interviewed Nett during the 60th annual Wisconsin Public Service Farm Show in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
