A new program by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture seeks to build connections between farmers who are ready to get out of the business and those who want to get in. The Minnesota Farm Transition Program offers a place where farmers who are ready to retire can connect with beginning farmers who may need help getting past the high capital costs of getting started.
With winter hopefully at an end farmers are looking towards Spring and an early planting season. University of Minnesota Extension educator Dan Martens says with the recent mild temperatures some farmers have already started work in the fields.
When it comes to farming knowing what's happening below the soil is just as important as the progress above the ground. BioAg specializes in soil fertility and consultant Michael Lovlien says there is more to soil then what meets the eye.
Technology in the agricultural industry continues to expand each year with new equipment or farming techniques. Over the last couple of years farmers have been working with unmanned aerial devices (UAVs) or drones.
