2020 – A Year That Challenged Everything in Agriculture

— Written By

Wow, we started off this planting season with frost damage on corn and tobacco. Then we had too much rain for tobacco planting. Then we had a very hot and dry summer which affected soybeans, corn, and tobacco. We got most of our harvest done in between rains and some still in the field. Wheat planting was held back due to rains and wet fields. Prices on commodities were not bad at all – most tobacco seems to bring a good price, same for corn, soybeans, and wheat. Next year will be better; commodity prices are holding and tobacco could have more buyers in the market. I see a brighter future in agriculture and new horizons for other agriculture ideas and projects.
