Iowa farmer gearing up for spring fieldwork


A south-central Iowa farmer is preparing to begin spring fieldwork.

Warren Bachman of Osceola says all his fertilizer was applied in the fall.

“Basically other than changing the oil in a couple of tractors and greasing the corn planter and getting it out of the shed, we’re ready to go.”

Speaking to Brownfield during Commodity Classic in Houston, Texas earlier this month, Bachman said last year was the earliest he’s started planting.
