Crop insurance won't cover unharvested fields

by Trinity Gruenberg

Due to the late spring, some farmers aren’t hitting it hard yet to harvest their crops.

“Guys are getting stuck everywhere trying to chop silage,” said Jared Hiebert, agronomy manager for Pro Ag in Clarissa.

Hiebert explained they are running into the issue of the fields being too wet to get in them and the possibility the crops will get too dry before farmers can harvest them. They are trying to get out what they can.

“It’s kind of a mess out there,” said Hiebert. . . .
