Is fall the time to buy?

One look across a lot of corn and soybean fields in the Midwest these days may not exactly inspire many farmers to break out the checkbook and start stocking up on crop inputs and new iron.

 

But, despite the lackluster look of the crops at this point in the hot, dry growing season, grain prices are good. So good that USDA-ERS said this week that average farm incomes are almost 20% higher than they were a year ago.
