Preparing for the Spring Planting Season
As soon as winter turns to spring, farmers across the country are ready to start their next planting season. Before heading out in the fields, however, these producers must take several factors into consideration, including the types of crops they are going to plant, when they can begin the planting process, and what types of equipment they are going to use.
Finding the Right Crops
When deciding on which crops to plant, farmers must look for those that will thrive in their specific region. Options for spring planting include:
- Spring wheat
As each of the planting times for the above crops can vary based on location, farmers should carefully research their options to determine what is best for their situation.
