Inputs remain in limbo as inflation climbs
The head of a state corn board says inflation could complicate how farmers market their crop for 2023.
Kelly Brunkhorst is with the Nebraska Corn Board. “That inflation that we talk about from food prices is now hitting input prices. I think there is a lot of concern because that risk is a lot higher because of the way input prices are.
He tells Brownfield skyrocketing inputs have cut margins and there could be more uncertainty for the next growing season. “I think there is a lot of concern for farmers who are starting to put seed on order for next year. Especially, fertilizer – fertilizer offerings are being out there for a shorter time and being taken off. The quantities are being smaller or questionable.
He spoke with Brownfield at the 2022 Ag Outlook Forum in Kansas City presented by Agri-Pulse and Kansas City Agribusiness Council.
