FOLEY — The overnight freeze is yet another blow to farmers who are trying to salvage their crops this year.

We told you recently about the wet conditions hampering crop growth in some areas. Now, the early freeze may actually kill off some of those immature plants.

U-of-M Extension Educator Dan Martens says there is more variation to the crops in central Minnesota than he can ever remember. He says some yields will be as good as ever while others will be as poor as ever.

Martens says there is a “Fall Crop Harvest” discussion tomorrow at Mr. Jim’s in Foley from 10:00-to-Noon. Extension educators and crop insurance reps will be on hand to discuss the different scenarios facing farmers. Farmers are encouraged to attend.
