The Start of Farming

Posted: Updated:

Farmer Ron Goedde says he feels very comfortable with how far along in the planting season his family's farm is. 

Not every year has been this nice to Goedde Farms according to Norman Goedde, who has been farming in the area for over 70 years. Norman says two of the last three years were late starts and even though they faired well at harvest time, he was glad they had crop insurance.

While the Goeddes are almost finished planting their fields this spring, there are still plenty of farmers who have a lot of work to do, according to Van Wert extension agent Curtis Young.

Goedde says traditionally most farmers like to have their corn crop in by end of May.
