Minnesota farmer starting with soybeans
Planting is underway for a farmer in central Minnesota.
Pat Sullivan of Franklin tells Brownfield he planted about 160 acres of soybeans Thursday.
“You know that first start up day can be a long day, but we think we’ve got things working. So looking forward to maybe getting some corn in the ground, and maybe some beets here pretty soon.”
He says they’ve stopped planting because of light rain but the forecast is encouraging.
“If we can get through this next day or so of some of these scattered showers, next week I think we’re (going to see) some 60’s (for temperature). If it dries out, I think it will get pretty wild around here.”
Sullivan says he also planted soybeans first last year and they did okay.
