Nate Nysse cannot remember a worse year weather wise for farmers in his years as an agronomist, but finding solutions together might help everybody find a little sunshine. Peninsula Pride Farms hosted a meeting at the Brussels Community Center Monday with farmers and personnel from the Land and Water Conservation Departments at both Door and Kewaunee Counties. The two sides discussed the challenges they will be facing over the next several weeks and potential ways to make a bad situation better. Nysse believes communication will be key as farmers look to get to their fields to harvest this year’s crop and plant next year’s.
As an agronomist, Nysse is telling his farmers to look at alternative strategies to safely apply manure. Mother Nature does not plan on playing nice anytime soon with farmers as rain is in the forecast through Thursday night.
