Nebraska farmer sees favorable crop conditions
A southwest Nebraska farmer says his crops are looking better than expected.
Andy Jobman says a wetter than normal May helped spark a strong start to the growing season.
“We’ve used a lot of that moisture up,” he said. “There is some subsoil left that we have some reserve, but we are definitely needing to irrigate regularly now to keep up with crop demand.”
He tells Brownfield, “Any rain we get is going to equate to a savings in irrigation costs, and also some added productivity to those dry land acres.”
Jobman is a fifth-generation corn farmer from Gothenburg.
