Despite a week of having the fewest days suitable for fieldwork in a month, Minnesota farmers continue making progress in the harvest. The U.S. Department of Agriculture says in the weekly Minnesota crop report only 5.3 days were suitable for fieldwork in the week ending Sunday.
Minnesota farmers took advantage of ideal weather last week to double their progress in harvesting corn. According to the USDA's weekly crop report, Minnesota saw 6.6 days suitable for fieldwork for the week ending Sunday.
With winter hopefully at an end farmers are looking towards Spring and an early planting season. University of Minnesota Extension educator Dan Martens says with the recent mild temperatures some farmers have already started work in the fields.
When it comes to farming knowing what's happening below the soil is just as important as the progress above the ground. BioAg specializes in soil fertility and consultant Michael Lovlien says there is more to soil then what meets the eye.
Technology has produced some amazing new ideas within the agricultural industry and during last month's Farm Show a few were on display. Dairy Master has come up with an activity collar known as the Moo Monitor to track the activity and health of a cow.
